Road work is scheduled for Laurier Street


Residents who frequently drive along Laurier Street in Morrisburg will soon  see some improvements where Laurier meets County Road 2.

United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry engineer Ben De Haan reported that work will begin sometime in mid-August.

According to De Haan, work on the patch of Laurier Street just south of County Road 2 in Morrisburg will include the following:

• Excavation and removal of the existing culvert under the roadway

• Installation of a new culvert 

• Reconstruction of the road granulars

• Installation of sub-drains (to help keep the granular material dry)

• Repaving

“We will end up re-paving approximately 20 meters of asphalt,” said De Haan.  

“There may be some traffic delays due to construction, but  a complete road closure will not be required.”
