Drivers’ patience will be put to the test over the next fewmonths as an overhaul of a section of Highway 34 in Vankleek Hill is carried out. Malyon Excavation Limited, of Cornwall, is reconstructing the road from Main Street to the north- ern town limits. Traffic in this area is being reduced to one lane during the work that is ex- pected to be wrapped up November 14. Champlain Township is carrying out the $2.3 million project with the help of a $2.1 million Ontario government sub- sidy.

The work will see the road widened to accommodate a new center left turning lane. The job also includes the replace- ment of the existing storm sewer, from Main Street to the Little Rideau Drain, the replacement of some sanitary sewer sections and a watermain. Sidewalks and curbs are being replaced while driveway culverts are being re- moved. Catch basins will be installed to ensure proper drainage at driveways. Some Hydro poles are being moved and new“School zone”signs with solar blink- ing lights are being installed.
