Realignment Needed for Magpie Avenue in Michipicoten River Village

The Municipality of Wawa will slightly change a roadway in the Mission.

During their meeting Tuesday night, Wawa Municipal Council approved a by-law to "dedicate certain municipal lands for highway purposes as part of Magpie Avenue in the Michipicoten River Village".

Kevin Sabourin - the Assistant Director of Protective Services - explains the move stems from a question about the current roadway.

Sabourin says the by-law passed by Council is meant to address issues found with the existing roadway.

To keep the roadway from going over neighbouring properties, Sabourin says it will have to be altered slightly.

No timeline has been given for the changes.
