Traffic quiet in Vankleek Hill as excavation continues
Traffic is quiet at the main intersection of the village of Vankleek Hill and will remain so for a while.
Excavation at the intersection of Main Street and Highway 34 has begun as part of the Highway 43/Connecting Link Project for upgrading underground water and sewer lines in the Highway 34 and High Street areas of the village. Route 34 leading into the village from Hawkesbury is closed to all but local traffic and detour points are marked to divert other traffic.
The township office warns residents that on Monday, October 1 the intersection of High Street and Fraser Street will be closed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for deep sanitary sewer mainline repair work. The closure may extend to the following Tuesday if repair crews cannot complete the work on the Monday.
Barricades and detour route signs will be set up in advance of the Monday closure schedule. Houses and driveways on High Street will remain accessible from either end of the closure. Residents on Fraser will need to get to their properties via Pendleton Street.
For more details, including information on detour route plans, go to the township office at the intersection of Pleasant Corners Road and Highway 34, phone 613-678-3003, or go to the township website at www.champlain.ca.
