Work to Add Climbing Lanes Begins on Veterans Memorial Highway #nltraffic

Motorists are advised that work to add climbing lanes at four locations on Route 75, Veterans Memorial Highway, is currently underway.

Due to blasting required for the widening of the highway and heavy equipment making frequent trips to and from each location, temporary detours will be implemented from Monday to Saturday each week beginning on October 31. The detours will be in place each day from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to lessen the impact on travel during times of heavier traffic. This work is anticipated to be completed in late November with paving of the climbing lanes to take place in the spring.

Motorists will detour at the highway’s intersection with Country Road, Route 71, and Hodgewater Line. During the detours, there will be no access to Route 75 via the North River Road.
