Dig it up, patch it up on North­field

The Woolwich Observer - - NEWS -

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.”
