Peterborough County says work on County Road 14, which connects Bridgenorth and Ennismore, will begin on or about Dec. 1 and continue until March 15, 2020.

The county advises that during daily construction, the roadway will be reduced to one traffic lane with traffic control flagging in effect. The roadway is to be reopened to two lanes of traffic at the end of each workday.

The project is the first phase of a multi-year plan to rehabilitate the causeway that will involve completion of the rock fill widening and the subsequent rehabilitation of the existing two-lane roadway and Chemong Bridge.
