Dig it up, patch it up on Northfield
When the Northfield Drive route through Conestogo finally reopened, drivers were greeted with construction delays and an awfully bumpy ride in the southbound lane between Line 86 and Sawmill Road.
The situation was connected to the ongoing work in Conestogo – a portion of Sawmill Road remains closed – as the Region of Waterloo extends water services connected the village to the West Montrose system.
The patchy bits on the road are from areas dug up to install the watermain extending from Conestogo to West Montrose.
“The road was cut out to install the watermain up to West Montrose, where it is currently being installed,” said the region’s Jim Ellerman. “Those cuts were temporary and now they are patched over fully, so there shouldn’t be any problems.”
