June 30, 2020: Simultaneous closure of Mille-Isles and Tamaracouta Roads from July 6 to 17, 2020.

The Municipality of Mille-Isles and the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ) wish to inform you that pavement rehabilitation work on Mille-Isles and Tamaracouta Roads will result in the simultaneous closure of these roads from July 6 to 17 inclusively.

For your information, the work on Mille-Isles Road, which is in progress until August 4, 2020, is under the responsibility of the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ), while the work on Tamaracouta Road, which is in progress until October 23, 2020, is managed by the Municipality.

This work will allow a significant improvement of these two important traffic routes that cross the Municipality. To limit inconveniences, coordination made it possible to provide a lane for vehicles during most of the work by offering the possibility for motorists of Mille-Isles Road to use Tamaracouta Road and, alternately, for motorists of Tamaracouta Road to use Mille-Isles Road.

For the period of July 6 to 17, a detour through the municipal network of the Township of Gore via Scott Road and Cambria Road will be set up for users of Tamaracouta Road. However, traffic will be possible on Tamaracouta Road on the weekend of July 11 and 12. The Municipality of Mille-Isles would like to warmly thank the Municipality of the Township of Gore for its excellent collaboration. Users of Mille-Isles Road will be able to take the detour via routes 329 and 364, as well as Highway 15. Please note that truckers will absolutely have to use this detour for both hindrances.

The Municipality and the Ministry are aware of the inconveniences caused by this work, which is necessary to ensure the functionality of the road network and thank the users for their understanding.

Proposed detour by the Municipality

Proposed detour by the MTQ (mandatory for truckers)


June 29, 2020: Work to come.

Tree cutting:

  • 70 % completed. Only the northwestern part of Black Road remains, where there is a lower density of trees.

Spraying (asphalt crushing):

  • All parts of the road that have been rebuild have been pulverized. This step makes it possible to rebuild the foundation without removing and transporting the original asphalt.

Scarification:

  • 300 meters are completed on 6,300 meters to go. This step follows spraying, as contractors remove rocks and any undesirable substances from the foundation to a depth of 4 feet. Currently, there is a lot of it, that is what is causing holes and bumps in the road;
  • This step requires the closure of the road and will be greatly accelerated in the coming weeks. There will be up to 5 excavators and 10 trucks at work simultaneously;
