Road closure at Alma postponed for one week

ALMA - The start of  a planned road closure for a construction project here has been delayed by a week.

As a part of ongoing asphalt resurfacing  and passing lane work on Wellington Road 7 between Salem and Alma, a culvert in Alma is also planned for replacement. 

The original schedule for the replacement of the culvert was from Aug. 8 to 18.  

However Wellington County construction manger Mark Eby reported on Aug. 3 that due to the  recent storms, the subcontractor that will be completing the replacement has been slowed down on the project that it is currently working on and will not be starting the Alma culvert until later next week.  

The road closure is now scheduled for Aug. 14 to 25, rather than the original dates of Aug. 8 to 18.

Once work commences at the culvert there will not be any through access.  

A detour around the construction will take motorists on Wellington Roads 12, 8 and 17.

The county also reported last week that work that to replace a culvert on Wellington Road 12 between the 12th Line and Wellington Road 7 is completed and the road was reopened on Aug. 4.

The road had been closed since July 4.
