On Friday, April 26 the Town of Saint-Lazare announced Rue Chaline will remain closed approximately until mid-July 2019. The closed section is off-limits to both vehicles and pedestrians.
Geotechnical engineers inspected the site and confirmed the heavy rains of the past few weeks accelerated the ground erosion on both sides of the culvert. Work is underway to ensure the drinking water supply and fire safety.
The alternate route of Rue de Carillon will be regularly leveled with a grader to improve the comfort of motorists however, the city cannot mark lanes on the road because of its gravel surface. Motorists are asked to respect the posted speed limits. As well, a call has been made to Canada Post to temporarily move the mailboxes for greater ease of access and is currently awaiting a reply.
The Town will keep residents informed with weekly updates.
