Big job on Arthur Street begins


A busy road construction season continues in Thunder Bay.
Projects to be undertaken over the next few months include road and sidewalk rehabilitation, paving in residential areas, sewer and water main repair/replacement, bridge work and streetlight renewal.
The city is spending $40 million on road improvements and related infrastructure this year, with $8.25 million coming from the Enhanced Infrastructure Renewal Program capital budget.
The work may result in road closures, detours and delays for drivers.
Drivers should reduce their speed, be alert, watch for workers and drive with extra care in construction zones, the city said in a news release.
The following areas, scheduled for road and other major infrastructure work, are expected to affect traffic this month:
• Arthur Street between Edward Street and Tarbutt Street is undergoing road reconstruction, and water main and storm sewer replacement.
