Hwy 16 remains closed east of Houston at McKilligan Road due to a vehicle crash this morning (Jan. 13).

“A vehicle and logging truck have been involved in a collision and the highway is closed in both directions. It was reported at 7:24 a.m. and is 9-10 kilometers east of Houston on Highway 16,” RCMP Corporal Madonna Saunderson told Black Press Media.
