Highway 148 closed, difficult detour in place

I don't know what else has happened to our dearly beleagured highway this week, but the heavy rains on June 23rd and 24th have completely decimated the culvert and bridge at the intersection of the 148 and Ch. Therrien in Luskville, past St. Luke's on the hill from the east, and just past Nugents machinery depot from the west.
There is now a 30 foot deep gap where the road used to be, and that's not something that's going to be fixed overnight, I can tell you.
To re route traffic, there is a detour set up along the very muddy narrow and twisting Parker Rd, leading to the tiny McKibbon, leading back to the highway up poor old Ch. Curley, where the Depanneur Pontiac is. People, please give yourselves a LOT more time to get around this difficult situation.
Those in cars and small vans, please slow down!
Those driving trucks and busses, pulling boats or trailers, you guys are in trouble.
Those on bikes, forget it.

Good luck.

Taken Friday evening before the whole thing went down.
