Next Phase Of Bridge Corridor Roadwork To Begin

Seskehko:wa/September 8, 2016

The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne is updating the community on the next phase of reconstruction for the bridge corridor on Kawehno:ke (Cornwall Island).

Next week, heavy machinery will begin preparing the ground from the end of the North Channel Bridge to the Seaway International Bridge Corporation (SIBC) parking lot on Kawehno:ke. Only this area of roadway is being reconstructed during this phase. The roadway is being straightened to align with the bridge.

Traffic will be routed further east during this phase. Flaggers will be managing traffic during work hours, and after hours both lanes of traffic will be open. No complete closures are planned; however, traffic may be delayed while heavy machinery works around the area.

Please plan accordingly for potential delays and use caution when traveling through the corridor.
