Murphys Point

Road construction on a portion of County Road 1 (Rideau Ferry Road) between the Town of Perth and the junction of County Road 21 (Elmgrove Road) is underway. The road is being re-surfaced, and crews have been currently working Monday - Friday weekly. Traffic is still fluid with only minor stoppages where it is reduced to one lane.
