New!

Was caught in the closure going to Ottawa this am.  Got detoured from Appleton Side Road right down to Eagleson. 

Highway was open about 1:00 on the drive back.  Must have been just opened since they still had one detour sign flashing.

Highway 7 has been moved over to the new part of the road up to and past Dwyer Hill.  They have new lights installed at Dwyer Hill and it rejoins the old highway about half a mile up.

Probably another mess up of confusing signs.

OTTAWA A 39-year-old man from Arnprior was pronounced dead at the scene of a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Highway 7 and Dwyer Hill Road Thursday morning.

The victim was driving south on Dwyer Hill in a dark green Cadillac when he collided with a dump truck heading eastbound on Highway 7 at 5:40 a.m.

The driver of the dump truck was not injured. Police say the dump truck had a green light. Though it was raining, weather was not a factor in the accident, said Const. Eric Booth of the Ottawa Detachment of the OPP.

Police expect to release the name of the victim Thursday after contacting his family.

Highway 7 and Dwyer Hill Road have been closed since the accident, with eastbound traffic re-routed to Ashton Station and Hazeldean roads. Police anticipated re-opening the intersection by 11:30 a.m.
