Welcome to 2017, where for the next twelve months Canadians will be celebrating something very special -- Canada's 150th birthday! Everywhere you look, events are popping up in recognition of this amazing milestone (have you ordered your free 2017 Parks Canada Pass yet?) You'll be hearing more from the KLCA regarding ways in which you can participate this year as well! Stay tuned . . .
The Dorset bridge is undergoing rehabilitation and will be fully closed to traffic beginning April 3, 2017. The work is expected to be completed by the end of June, 2017.
Government Docks and Gazebo
The Government Docks at Russell Landing will be renewed/replaced this year. Township staff will also be removing the gazebo and make repairs to the cribbing structure beneath it starting the week of March 27. A request for tender for the construction and supply of 4 new docks will be posted this spring The results of that tender will dictate when the new docks will be available for installation; however, the expectation is that the docks will be unavailable during a period of approximately 3 days. It should be noted that only four of the original six sections of dock will be replaced, resulting in a reduced capacity.
Bear Lake Road Bridge
Bear Lake Road bridge footings will be replaced this year. The bridge size is to remain the same and work will be scheduled to minimize impact to users.
