Construction, Road Work and Closures

Welcome to our dedicated page for updates on road construction and closures. We understand that road construction can cause temporary inconveniences, and we appreciate your understanding and patience during this time.

2024 Little Papineau Creek Bridge Rehabilitation 

Trilith Contracting Inc has been selected to carry out the Little Papineau Creek Bridge Rehabilitation Project by the Municipality of Hastings Highlands. The bridge is located on Hwy 62, 770m north of Boulter Road.


The scope of work for this project will include the demolition and reconstruction of the bridge deck and as well as structural repairs and reinforcement to the underside of the bridge.  Construction will impact traffic flow, and a single traffic lane will be established on Highway 62.  In an effort to minimize disruption and facilitate access as much as possible, the work will be completed in two stages. 


We kindly request that you plan ahead and consider alternative routes during this period to help us complete the work as efficiently as possible.


•    Anticipated Project Start: June 24,2024
•    Anticipated Project Completion: August 29,2024


Throughout the construction, we will strive to minimize disruptions.  However, some inconvenience is inevitable with such work, and we ask for your patience and cooperation with our traffic control personnel and work crews. Emergency access to all roads, businesses, and homes will be maintained at all times.


We appreciate your understanding and patience during this construction and look forward to completing these essential upgrades.
