The work continues on a washed-out section of Highway 915 which has left the community of Stanley Mission without road access.

About community members were stranded in Prince Albert on the weekend and another 30 are staying in La Ronge, either with family or in hotels.

Lac La Ronge Indian Band Chief Tammy Cook-Searson says crews have been making good progress.

Cook-Searson notes the culverts were installed last night, and about 30 of the roughly 80 truck loads of fill that are needed to rebuild the road have been put in place.

She says it is still possble to cross the river by boat, but people should avoid the washout area until it is safe to drive across.

Both the chief and Saskatchewan Highways say crews remain on target to finish the temporary repairs and restore road access by tomorrow, at the latest.

Meanwhile, band councillor Bernice Roberts confirms there were some vehicles left near the washout, after stranded travellers were transported to the community by other means.

Roberts says security personnel have been put in place to keep an eye on those vehicles 24 hours a day.
