Hwy. 174 eastbound lanes to reopen Monday afternoon
By Fred Sherwin

East end commuters will be thrilled to find out that all three eastbound lanes on Hwy. 174 will be reopened for Monday's drive home, ending two weeks of headaches and aggravation caused by a collapsed culvert.

The collapsed culvert opened up a large sinkhole during the afternoon rush hour on Tuesday, Sept. 4, which in turn swallowed up a Hyundai Accent owned by Orléans resident J.P. Unger.

The sinkhole grew overnight, forcing the City to close the eastbound lanes indefinitely while they waited for a replacement pipe.

On Thursday, the City was able to open a single eastbound lane using the lefthand shoulder on the westbound side.

City crews have been working around the clock in a race to open the eastbound lanes in time for Monday's rush hour. The Jeanne d'Arc Blvd. off-ramp will remain closed, however, until that portion of the work is completed, likely by midweek.

(This story was made possible thanks to their generous support of our local business partners.)
