Sawmill Road set to re-open

The Woolwich Observer - - NEWS -

East-west tran­sit through Con­estogo may soon be a re­al­ity again, as the Re­gion of Water­loo looks to wrap up con­struc­tion and re-open Sawmill Road this week­end.

Orig­i­nally pro­jected to be com­pleted by month’s end, de­spite road­way signs sug­gest­ing work was to fin­ish by early Novem­ber, con­struc­tion is be­ing com­pleted two or three weeks early, fol­low­ing sched­uled paving for to­mor­row (Fri­day).

“The road will be opened by the week­end, prob­a­bly Novem­ber 11, and then traf­fic will be able to con­tinue to use that road and be re-opened per­ma­nently,” said re­gional project man­ager Jim Eller­man. “So we are ac­tu­ally about two or three weeks ahead of sched­ule, as we were an­tic­i­pated to be com­pleted by Novem­ber 30.”

Eller­man added that there will be an in­ter­mit­tent con­struc­tion pres­ence over the next cou­ple of weeks in and around Con­estogo.
