Tired of having to drive the circle? Wondering when the Hwy. 11 off-ramp to Hwy. 60 will be reopened? You’re not alone, but it looks like you’ll have to be patient for at least another two months.
The northeast ramp at Hwy. 11 and Hwy. 60 was closed on June 5, 2017. It was expected to reopen by end of September but that date is now being pushed back to mid-October. That’s because, according to Ministry of Transportation representative, Lara Cantin, the contractor needs more time.
“The contractor requires extra time to carry out bridge jacking operations, replace bearing pads and complete necessary concrete work on this structure. The full scope and extent of the repairs could not be fully estimated until they started the bridge work and jacking operations were completed. These operations have taken the contractor about two weeks longer than anticipated,” she said. “We anticipate to complete all repair work and open the ramp to traffic by mid-October, 2017.”
