Residents kicking up dust over roadwork

The ongoing roadwork on Highway 148 in the Municipality of Pontiac has some residents upset.
The roadwork has been going on since early May and has one alternating lane open. Drivers must follow an escort vehicle through the construction zone.
There is a detour available down Ch. de la Montagne, which many residents have been using – some with the same rate of speed as on Hwy. 148.
The municipality made a post on its Facebook page asking residents to avoid using roads like Elm, Terry Fox, Marquis and Dubois because they are meant for local traffic only.
The municipality said that the residents on these streets have complained numerous times about drivers who speed down their residential streets while using them as detours and kick up large amounts of dust in the process.
