You will be forced to take some detours around Kapuskasing beginning today.

Public Works Manager Eric Cote says beginning at 9:00am they will close Brunelle Road North and Brunelle Road South at the Highway 11 intersection.

Cote says this is because crews are going to be re-commencing work along the highway in that section.

In short, he says the highway will always be open, but Brunelle both North and South will not have access to it, nor will access to them from the highway.

“So what you are going to have to do is basically detour to De L’Etang (Boulevard) or Cournoyer (Street) back out to Golf Street, or on the other side of things Richmond (Avenue) remains open, and Vanier (Street). So there’s going to be detours installed there by the contractor and on the south side of the tracks you will be able to access the highway through Mill Street.”

Cote says at this time they are simply going to finish up the prior work they had planned, which could take them up to a month.
