The City of North Bay is proceeding with the reconstruction of a section of Main Street this spring and has issued a request for tenders.
Officials say the closing day is Feb. 23, 2023, and once a contract has been awarded, the project is expected to get underway in early spring.
Areas of Main Street between Cassells Street and Sherbrooke Street along with Ferguson Street between Main Street and Oak Street are set to get work done.
That work involves the replacement of new asphalt roadway, brushed concrete and exposed aggregate sidewalks, traffic lights, curb and gutter, retaining walls, and more.
It will be the first major renovation to Main Street in nearly 40 years.
Originally planned for 2022, tendering of the project was postponed last year following consultation with downtown businesses due to concern about the potential impact of construction at the beginning of their post-COVID-19 recovery.
Prior to construction, members of the public will have an opportunity to review the construction drawings, examine the project schedule, and ask City staff and Contractor project-related questions during an open house at City Hall. Notification of the public meeting will be determined once a low-bid contractor has been awarded the project.
