If you usually take Wallace Road to get from Birchaven to the Seymour Street area, you’ll need a different route for about five weeks.
Wallace Road will be closed between Lake Heights Road and Commerce Court starting on Monday, Aug. 9th.
The city says the closure will allow for the installation of a deep sanitary sewer and because of the location, a detour is not feasible.
“The closure is required due to soil conditions encountered during the Wallace Road Sewage Pumping Station construction project, which recently got underway,” states a release from The City of North Bay.
Local access to properties and businesses within the closure will be provided.
Access to properties north of the construction area will be available by way of Wickstead Avenue, while access to properties to the south of the construction area will be available by way of Seymour Street.
The city says the contractor will make every effort to complete the work as quickly and efficiently as possible.
“The City of North Bay thanks residents for their patience and cooperation while this important infrastructure project is underway,” says the release.
