KAPUSKASING – Those travelling through the Model Town along Hwy. 11 can expect detours for an estimated five weeks as crews finish up the highway project, which was started last summer.

Brunelle Rd. North and Brunelle Rd. South will be closed at the Highway 11 intersection so work can continue from Golf St. to just shy of that intersection.

“We haven’t heard yet whether or not our application to extend the project to include the intersection as part of the ongoing work has been accepted,” said General Manager of Public Works, Eric Côté. “We’re diverting traffic in the area as a safety precaution for our workers.”

There remains some piping work to do on the project before finishing work including paving can commence.
