Residents travelling along Hwy. 148 can expect more construction in the month of August, but here’s hoping it leads to better things.
Two stretches will see some extensive reworking done, between a need for stabilization work and general maintenance.
First off, in the Mansfield area, the stabilization work has already gotten underway. The portion between rue l’Écuyer and rue Dagenais will be affected by this construction.

Work began Aug. 1, and will see the highway reduced to a 3.2 metre wide track, with the speed limit reduced to 60 km/h. Workers are scheduled to be onsite from Mondays through Fridays, from 7 a.m. till 7 p.m. each day.
The stabilization work is expected to be completed Aug. 28, 2017.
The second bout of construction began on Aug. 7, in the Clarendon, Litchfield and Bryson areas.
This work has been labelled as maintenance, and will close one lane. Lane closures will occur in intervals of 500 metre segments.
Construction will be done on a rather large area, running from chemin Stewart in Shawville out to chemin Moorhead in Campbell’s Bay.
Workers will be present Monday through Friday, with hours from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
This round of maintenance is expected to wrap up on Sept. 1, 2017.
