The $4.7 million reconstruction of Petrolia Line from Bridgeview Park to Eureka Street will go ahead.
The province will contribute $2 million to the project which will replace all the water and sewer services, repave the road and improve the streetscape.
Petrolia’s CAO Manny Baron says the project will be broken into two parts over two years. This year – likely starting in the early summer – crews will stabilize the hill between Tank Street and Bridgeview Park and replace services there. Th reconstruction will be complete by 2016.
Baron promises more consultation with business owners who have expressed concern about how the construction will limit access to their shops.
