Road­work in area

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead East

Route

143 be­tween Bur­rough’s Falls and Stanstead will be closed un­til Septem­ber 29th as work­ers re­place a cul­vert near the Te­treault Road where it was re­cently paved. The road is open to lo­cal traf­fic only. Driv­ers must take a de­tour via au­toroute 55 and route 141.

The 55 north is now closed un­til Novem­ber 13th, 2011, so Trans­port work­ers can con­struct the new weigh sta­tion and the new exit from the 55. Di­rec­tives from the depart­ment as well as the signs that have been put up were con­fus­ing there­fore, af­ter a drive around the area and af­ter speak­ing to Trans­port depart­ment work­ers, it seems like, for now, the best de­tour for driv­ers com­ing north from the bor­der, as long as they are not driv­ing heavy trucks, is to take exit ramp #2, then take the 143 un­til the Cur­tis Road, and take the Cur­tis Road back to the 55 North. Heavy trucks must use the de­tours sug­gested by the Trans­port Depart­ment’s road signs.
