Travellers can expect a full closure of slow lanes northbound and southbound on Highway 19 between Jan. 2 and Jan. 20.

Crews will be removing trees between the Cumberland exit and Hamm Road, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. This will lead to full closure of slow lanes. Speed limits will be reduced to 60km/h with possible, short delays.

Mainroad North Island Contracting urges the public to watch for traffic personnel and to obey road signs. To show respect for roadside crews, slow down.

Twenty-four hour communications, and the dispatch office, will pass on all your observations and concerns to our crews when contacted.

As always, a reminder to visit
