UPDATE: Highway 148 Detour Progress

Categories:

Luskville Sector — Ministry of Transport Québec officials are hopeful that the bypass road being built alongside the washed-out portion of Highway 148 will be ready to go into service later this afternoon, relieving local residents and visitors to the Municipality of Pontiac from the one-and-a-half hour plus detour in effect since Tuesday afternoon.

The bypass lane will accommodate one lane of traffic at a time, alternating directions by way of temporary traffic lights that will be put in place on each end of the newly created bypass lane.

Mayor Roger Larose and Pontiac’s MNA André Fortin were both onsite monitoring the MTQ’s progress and speaking to concerned citizens.

The Ministry of Transport Québec officials advise motorists to monitor the MTQ website for the exact time of the bypass lane opening.

Affaissement de la 148 : une voie de contournement sera complétée aujourd’hui

Categories: 

ICI Ottawa Gatineau

Transports Québec devrait terminer vendredi l'aménagement d'une voie de contournement autour du trou de 10 m de diamètre sur la route 148 près de Luskville.

Le nouveau chemin de déviation sera beaucoup plus court que celui que devaient emprunter les automobilistes jeudi, un détour de près d'une heure.

Again with a Sinkhole on the 148

Jonathan Crowe

In June 2011, heavy rains washed out a portion of Route 148 between Luskville and Quyon, forcing traffic to detour along narrow gravel roads for more than two months. At the time I noted that had the washout occured east of Parker Road rather than west of it, no detour would have been possible: westbound traffic would have had to double back to Gatineau, and eastbound traffic would have had to take the Eardley-Masham Road or the Quyon Ferry.

Pontiac Severed

Categories:

Luskville Sector — Following yesterdays Canada Day tornado microburst that left dozens of Pontiac homes damaged, the Municipality was dealt a new blow when another section of Highway 148 was washed out near the Luskville Recreation Park effectively cutting east and west Pontiac off from each other.

The collapse occurred in the eastbound lane on the south side of the highway around midday and there were no reported injuries related to the washout.  Ministry of Transport Québec officials are on scene assessing the damage and have not yet worked out a timetable for the length of the repairs.  Motorists coming from the east-end of Ottawa are being advised to detour north via Highway 5 to Wakefield, then take the 366 through Masham to chemin d’Eardley, continuing towards chemin Eardley-Masham to the 148 in South Onslow, ward 3 in the Municipality of Pontiac.

Drivers coming from Ottawa’s West-end are advised to avail themselves of the new Ferry in Quyon to reach wards 1,2 and 3.  Unfortunately, the very badly warn-out logging road between Pontiac and lac La Pêche is the only northerly route available to detour around the current road closure.  The Municipality has literally been cut in two by a small section of road and the excruciatingly arduous and dangerous detours caused by this closure — the latest in a string of similar road collapses that have plagued the Municipality of Pontiac for several years.

Sources say that the Municipality had known of the potential for problems with the culvert passing under the highway and had brought the matter to the attention of the MTQ again last week.  Coupled with yesterdays tornado storm, Pontiac’s first responders are very busy ensuring the public’s safety and cleaning up the mess brought on by the fierce storm.  Today’s Road closure only adds to Pontiac’s woes.

With the arrival of the summer season, area businesses will no doubt be hurt by the disruptions created by this vital artery being severed once again.

Les feux à ciel ouvert interdits en forêt

Categories: 

Le Droit

La Société de protection des forêts contre le feu (SOPFEU) lance une interdiction de faire des feux à ciel ouvert en forêt ou à proximité, et cela, en raison des conditions qui sévissent présentement.

Cette mesure, qui est entrée en vigueur hier, vise plusieurs régions du Québec.

En Outaouais, l'interdiction ne touche toutefois que le Pontiac et la Vallée-de-la-Gatineau.

12 week Zumba class in Luskville

Categories: 

Hello Everyone

I’m happy to announce that we have enough participants to run the 12 week Zumba class in Luskville!

To those of you who registered in advance…thank you!

If you haven’t registered yet for the 12-week session, it’s not too late! Please arrive 10 minutes early if you still need to register. This will help to ensure our class starts right at 7pm.

Tips for A successful Zumba class:

  • Smile, laugh, be silly, shout, sing.  Zumba is a safe place to let loose. The more energy we create, the more fun we will have together.
  • Dance at your own pace and take breaks when you need them. Listen to your body.
  • When in doubt, just march on the spot!
  • Wear comfortable running shoes and clothing that makes you feel good.
  • Bring plenty of water and drink often!
  • Bring a towel and be prepared to sweat.
  • Try not to be hard on yourself if you are having a hard time following along.  It can take a few classes to get the hang of the choreography.
  • Try not to worry about how you look. Other participants are likely more concerned about how they look than how you look. 
  • If you are having a hard time getting certain moves, please feel free to approach me after class and I will be happy to review the steps with you.
  • Remember to have fun!

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to send me an email.

I can't wait to Zumba with you on Thursday...

In good health,

Marianna Vakopoulos OCT, CCC. RHN

De moins en moins de fermes au pays

Categories: 

Alors que le nombre de fermes diminue au Canada, leur taille augmente et leurs exploitants se font de plus en plus âgés, révèle un rapport rendu public mardi par Statistique Canada.

L'agence, qui se fonde sur les données du Recensement de l'agriculture de 2011, a répertorié 205 730 fermes en 2011 au pays, ce qui représente un déclin de 74 000 exploitations agricoles en vingt ans.

Pendant ce temps, depuis 1991, la superficie agricole moyenne a augmenté pour passer de 198 à 778 acres

Un des auteurs du rapport et analyste en agriculture, Martin Beaulieu, a expliqué qu'une des raisons de cet accroissement de la taille des fermes est la mise en commun des terres à mesure que les agriculteurs prennent leur retraite.
