Road Improvement Request Fails to Make Budget

By Randy Thoms Feb 1, 2023 | 12:07 AM

Improvements to Cornwall Avenue in the north end of Fort Frances won’t happen in 2023.

Residents along the street asked for upgrades to be included in the 2023 capital budget.

They asked for a resurfacing of the road and curb and gutter work.

Operation and Facilities Manager Travis Rob says it is not recommended, especially with  an older style of pipe underneath.

“The challenge that we face is that the activity of resurfacing that road has the potential of causing further infrastructure damage as opposed to infrastructure improvement,” says Rob.

Rob says while the road needs improving, it’s not one of the worst roads on the town’s list.
