Planning underway for Lodge Road upgrades

Municipality will consult with residents and businesses about construction

Mayor James Baker says upgrades to Lodge Road will benefit residents of Lake Country.

Planned upgrades to Lodge Road in Lake Country are expected to start as soon as the school year ends, with completion in September.

Construction will include a roundabout at the intersection of Bottom Wood Lake Road and Lodge Road, as well as upgrades along Lodge Road to the 90 degree turn near the south end of the Clearwater subdivision.

“We’re excited to get moving forward on a project that many community groups and residents have been asking for,” said Mayor James Baker.

The $1.5 million project will have bike lanes and sidewalks, as well as a pedestrian bridge at Vernon Creek.

During construction, there will be a period of inconvenience as traffic is re-routed.

The contractor will be attempting to keep disruptions to a minimum and give stakeholders advance notice of impacts.

Detailed information about the project will made available through public meetings, media releases and direct mail-outs to immediately impacted residents and businesses.

The first neighborhood information session will be held April 11 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the municipal office.

“The inconvenience for a short time this summer will lead to long-term improved quality of life and safety for residents and visitors,” said Baker.
