Highway 118 is down to single lane in Highlands East because of a washout caused by a beaver dam.

The MTO reports the washout happened between Centre Lake Road and a kilometre east of North Paudash Beach Road this afternoon.

The OPP, Carillion, and the MTO will be at the scene tonight to control traffic and plan for repairs.

Constructions crews will be on hand tomorrow morning to start repairs, but the westbound lane will still be blocked by a flag person controlling traffic during that time.
