Email News Alerts

After closing to timber deliveries more than three weeks ago, Norbord opened its oriented-strand board plant at Solway to a line of trucks Monday.


By midday, the line grew to more than two dozen drivers looking to unload timber. That was up from 12 when the plant opened its gates at 7 a.m.

For area logging companies, the reopening came just in time.
