OTTAWA -- Highway 417 has reopened after being closed for construction work.

The Queensway was closed in both directions at Nicholas Street from 6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3 until 11 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 4. Construction crew were working to remove the old Nicholas Street Bridge along the highway this weekend.

There are lane reductions in place in the area until 6 a.m. Monday.
