Highway 10 north through Orangeville and up to Primrose should be smooth sailing now that all lanes have been reopened.
Last week, Mono resident and deputy mayoral candidate John Creelman sent a letter to the Minister of Transportation expressing his frustration with the ongoing construction.
MTO listened and earlier this week the contractor removed the pylons from the highway and reopened lanes.
Ministry spokesperson Kersondra Hickey tells myFM News that pavement reconstruction and electrical work from Camilla to Primrose and all culvert and bridge work is expected to be completed this year.
Road construction will stop when winter weather arrives and resume in the spring. Next year’s construction will focus on areas from Orangeville to Camilla with work scheduled to be completed by the fall.
“The ministrys representatives on-site continue to monitor the progress of the work and will continue to proactively explore all opportunities to minimize impacts to the travelling public, and to expedite construction being undertaken along this stretch of Highway 10.”
