THUNDER BAY – The pedestrian underpass running between Simpson Street and Kaministiquia River Heritage Park has been closed to the public while contractors perform maintenance work on the paving stone pathway that runs through the underpass.
The work involves lifting the unit, paving stones along the length of the underpass and resetting their grade. Some work will also be done on the wooden deck outside the tunnel’s eastern entrance, near the Animikii – Flies the Thunder sculpture. The work sites will be clearly marked with construction fencing, and closed to park visitors.
The closure is expected to last three weeks. Kaministiquia River Heritage Park will be accessible via CPR Subway Street off Syndicate Avenue South during the work period.
