The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne is reminding the community that the Cornwall Gravel Company Limited has begun construction for the Seaway International Bridge Corporation Contract 5-Kawehno:ke Bridge Corridor Construction.
This phase of reconstruction is providing improvements along the International Road corridor from the current “crossroads” intersection, up to the low-level bridge. This roadwork project is anticipated to take 9 months with completion slated for next spring. There are no expected road closures; however, travelers and residents should be prepared for delays when roadway is decreased to single lanes.
Council was informed photos were circulating on social media with inaccurate information on the drainage/culvert pipes being installed. Culvert pipes are used to allow water to flow under a road from one side to the other. These pipes are used to provide drainage to prevent flooding.
If you have any comments or questions, do not hesitate to contact the Mohawk Government Office at 613-575-2348.
