Oil Tank Road in Iroquois Falls is going to see more traffic than usual next Thursday.

Public works director Joel Cyr says it will serve as the major route between the Falls and Nellie Lake, while Jacob’s Hill Road is closed between Oil Tank and Anson Drive.

“We’ll be performing an emergency culvert repair, so we’ll have to close the road,” Cyr notes.

The road’s expected to be closed between 5:00am and 5:00pm.

“The culvert is located about 200 metres east of Vanier Road,” says Cyr.

People who live on either side of the repair site will be allowed through.
