New sec­tion of High­way 70

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - NEWS -

On Ju­ly 25th, do­zens of guests, in­clu­ding the Ba­got­ville Com­mand Team, at­ten­ded the inau­gu­ra­tion of a new sec­tion of High­way 70 near CFB Ba­got­ville. The ce­re­mo­ny mar­ked the com­mis­sio­ning of a 7.6ki­lo­me­ter sec­tion of high­way, en­abling mo­to­rists to avoid ma­ny in­ter­sec­tions and frequent stops. As soon as the new sec­tion was put in­to ope­ra­tion, CFB Ba­got­ville per­son­nel had to adapt to a new route to work. This will conti­nue un­til Oc­to­ber when fur­ther changes in iti­ne­ra­ries will oc­cur as work pro­gresses and construc­tion on se­con­da­ry roads and high­way ac­cess roads are star­ted. If eve­ry­thing is done ac­cor­ding to the sche­dule pre­sen­ted by the Mi­nis­try of Tran­spor­ta­tion, all road work will be com­ple­ted on Oc­to­ber 10th. School tran­spor­ta­tion and STS bus traf­fic may al­so be af­fec­ted by the road changes. Pa­rents will have to pay at­ten­tion to the in­for­ma­tion that will be gi­ven in the co­ming weeks, with the new school year fast ap­proa­ching. Right away the roads will be sa­fer near the base, thanks to this new sec­tion of high­way. The large flow of traf­fic de­via­ted to the high­way will re­duce the num­ber of pas­sing ve­hicles on High­way 170.
