A portion of County Road 22 in Lakeshore which buckled has fully reopened, after extreme heat forced its closure to accommodate emergency repairs.

The County of Essex announced Wednesday morning it had closed the eastbound lanes and one westbound lane between Patillo Road and East Pike Creek Road.

The busy stretch of road had buckled one day prior.

“The normal highs for this time of year is around 22 [degrees]. So we’re well above normal for this time of year,” said Coulson.
