Mountain road
Reopening planned for the weekend


On Monday November 27th, a team inspected the culvert that partially collapsed last weekend. It is a 6-foot diameter culvert that was to be changed next spring when the municipality was to complete the repavement of the last section of the Mountain road. The complete replacement of this culvert, as well as the one located nearby is an extremely expensive and complex project, because of the soil structure and the necessity to acquire rights-of-way. A geotechnical study was carried out last summer and the plans are in the process of being completed to allow the beginning of the work in the summer of 2018.

The inspection revealed that it should be possible to stabilize the culvert so that it can hold up until the summer, when sustainable work can be done. The operation consists essentially of clogging the culvert with metal and concrete and rebuilding the roadway. It is estimated that we will be able to restore traffic for the weekend (December 2nd).
