Information for residents and businesses about resources, events and activities in the Municipality of Pontiac in Quebec.
From what I have read in the papers the highway is going to be closed for at least a month to fix the severe damage. Here is a link you can check out if you want: http://www.ottawasun.com/2011/06/26/closure-puts-kink-in-cottage-season I am glad though that the detour is only a few extra minutes, but I do have a question; is it well marked (with signs I mean)?
It is marked...however there is a wait time because they can only let the bigger trucks go down one at a time because of the narrow road...we waited for about 15 mins this morning but once we got going, it's not that big of a detour
You can't miss the signs, and today there were lots of barriers and people on either end with flags. The detour is quite short, and was being gravelled and graded today. Unless there is heavy traffic or a big slow truck, it shouldn't add more than a few minutes to the trip.Also, I'd be surprised if it took them a month to fix this, especially if they make the sensible decision to use a local contractor: Nugent's is right on the west side of the gap!
