Roadwork in L’Orignal slowed down when Cornwall Gravel Company employees, members of Labourers international Union of North America (LiUNA), went on a month-long strike in July in hopes of a new agreement with the National Capital Road Builders Association (NCRBA).

A new agreement was reached between LiUNA and NCRBA on July 24, putting an end to the month-long strike.

Wharf Street was originally planned for closure July 20 for upgrade work, but planning staff for Champlain Township had to push the date back to August 2.

Wharf Street and King Street from Court Street to Peter Street will be closed from August 22 to the end of September. A detour is planned for King Street through Queen Street. A detour through Peter and Marston Street is planned for Wharf Street.

The municipality expects to have all the work schedule for 2022 completed by the end of the year and be on schedule for next year’s roadwork plans.
