Notice of Road Work


Changing culverts on Way's Mills Road

We want to inform you that the Quebec Ministry of Transportation will be replacing culverts on Way's Mills Road in the first weeks of September. We must finish this work before the paving of Way's Mills Road, scheduled for 2020. 

We will close Way's Mills Road to traffic — except local traffic:

  • between Highway 141 and Caron Road in the week of September 8, 2019
  • between Caron Road and Holmes Road in the week of September 15, 2019

 In both cases, the detour will be by Holmes Road:

  • between Holmes Road and Hunter Road in the week of September 22, 2019.

The detour will be via Hunter Road, Jordan Road and Buckland Road.

 Repair of the P-07173 bridge

The Quebec Ministry of Transportation awarded the contract to repair the P-07173 bridge over the Niger River (at the entrance to the hamlet of Way's Mills) to Les Constructions Randard Inc.

The work will take place from September 3 to September 20, 2019. We will then close the bridge to traffic. The proposed detour to the hamlet of Way's Mills as well as the municipal road network will be via Isabelle and Guay roads.

 Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during the work.
