Saskatchewan Highways says a stretch of Highway 135 between Pelican Narrows and Sandy Bay has been reopened.

The stretch of highway had been closed since Sunday night leaving Sandy Bay without road access after a summer storm caused washouts and flooding.

Highways officials are warning motorists to proceed with caution around two areas near Slim’s Camp where the road is reduced to a single lane of traffic.

The highway continues to have rough areas as work continues.

Local residents are encouraged to check the Highways Hotline for updates at.
