The defeat of the designated truck route bylaw earlier this week has left some members of Thunder Bay city council frustrated.

In January, council approved the creation of a designated truck route that would see heavy truck traffic diverted from Dawson Road and Arthur Street, keeping the trucks on Highway 11/17 except to make deliveries within Thunder Bay.

On Monday, council voted 7-5 against the bylaw that would enforce the designated truck route, raising questions as to what will happen next as the bylaw’s defeat doesn’t reverse council’s decision to approve the truck route.
