COE HILL — Rebuilding of 17.3 kilmetres of Hwy 62 south from the Coe Hill cutoff towards Madoc is expected to start this fall, the Ministry of Transportation says.
The ministry expects to award award a contract for the job this summer. Work is anticipated to start this fall and is expected to be completed in the fall of 2010.
- Work involves repaving Hwy 62 from 5.3 km north of Cleveland Road to 300 metres south of old Hwy 620.
- Intersection improvements at Weslemkoon Lake Road.
- Replacing the 73 year old Beaver Creek Bridge on a new alignment of Highway 62.
Today, the road is marked with a 60 km/h warning speed, because it’s so bumpy south from the 620 turn to Coe Hill. Signs are posted warning drivers about the condition of the road.
There’s already work underway this summer on Hwy 62 farther to the south, between Madoc and Ivanhoe.
That $2.8 million job involves resurfacing for 7.1 km between Ivanhoe and Quin-Mo-Lac Rd. and 1.4 km of resurfacing from north of the Moira Lake Bridge to the south limits of Madoc.
Work started July 15 and is expected to finish by Sept. 25.
