Update – Deer Lake Road Culvert Replacement

Road Closed Sign with Yellow Caution Flashers


(May 19, 2022) Update – Deer Lake Road Culvert Replacement and Road Closure

Subsequent to the unplanned closure of Deer Lake Road on May 6, 2022, due to the integrity of the Ragged Creek Culvert being a hazard for the travelling public, we wish to advise that the Engineering Firm has completed the necessary drawings required for the culvert replacement and is working with the Roads Department to obtain quotes from contractors for the installation of the culvert.

In addition, the Township has now received approval from Fisheries and Oceans Canada to conduct the culvert work. This approval was required to prevent and mitigate the potential effects to fish and fish habitat within the cold-water stream.

The culvert has been ordered and it is estimated that it could take up to 4 weeks before it is shipped to the Township. Please note that we do not have a date at this time of when the culvert will be replaced and the road re-opened.

We appreciate and understand the frustration of residents who are affected by the closure. We are working as quickly as possible to have the road re-opened for the travelling public.

Should you have any questions, please contact the Municipal Office at 705-636-5941 or by email at
