Section of Hwy 169 To Be Closed for Most of September
A section of Highway 169 between Gravenhurst and Bala is set to be closed for a significant part of September.
During their last meeting, District council agreed that it will be necessary to close the highway in both directions to replace a faulty culvert near the community of Torrance.
Starting on September 10, the highway will be closed form Torrance Road to the
intersection of Torrance Road and Muskoka Road 13 for a maximum of 19 consecutive days to accommodate the replacement of the culvert.
The detour will take motorists on Torrance Road for a length of roughly 1.7 kilometers.
The contract to replace the culvert was awarded to Fowler Construction for $335,000.
