Roadwork Begins on Kawehno:ke Corridor

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.
