Road work set to start


The reconstruction of Second Street East from Mowat Avenue to Portage will begin tomorrow morning.
As such, the 200 block will be closed to motor-vehicle traffic starting at 6 a.m.
At this time, the removal of boulevard trees on the north side of the street, along with the set-up of temporary water lines, will be completed.
The removal of asphalt, curbs and gutters, and sidewalk will follow shortly thereafter.
Just as it recently did on Nelson Street, Bay City Contractors will completely overhaul the block, replacing sewer, water, and storm sewer infrastructure before rebuilding the road, curbs and gutters, and sidewalks.
The job is expected to be completed by the last week of September.
However, it should not pose too much of an inconvenience for motorists because the adjacent intersections won’t be closed.
