Overpass to close for repairs

The overpass on Colonization Road East will be closed to vehicular traffic starting at 9 a.m. next Tuesday (Sept. 4) so needed repairs can be done to the south-side expansion joint.

To repair it, workers must drill holes in the angle iron, put in grease nipple jerks, and pump epoxy grout in between the angle iron and the concrete because it has lost its bond.

Dog park plans moving ahead

Plans for the Town of Fort Frances and the local Kiwanis Club to partner on an off-leash dog park here are moving forward now that a steering committee has been established.

The ad hoc advisory committee held its first meeting yesterday to review terms of reference, which now will be submitted to town council for its approval.
