THUNDER BAY -- The recreation trails at Boulevard Lake will be receiving an upgrade this summer but it will affect access to the popular location.

Starting on Monday, the southbound lane of West Lyon Boulevard will be closed to vehicular traffic from the intersection at Arundel Street to the Sandy Cove parking lot to begin construction to create a separated recreation trail.

The northbound lane will remain open to vehicular traffic while the southbound lane will be used as a temporary recreation trail.

It is expected construction will be completed by the end of August.

At some point during the construction period both lanes as well as the pedestrian trail will be closed to install culverts.

Now that Boulevard is getting more popular due to the Frisbee golf, it would be nice to see it fixed up more. On a side note, its still irritating when people walking the trails block both lanes and then get flustered when a bike almost runs them over.

This should have been a lower priority project. The Roads around the city are a Mess, Potholes and sinkholes. Fix the traffic lanes and roadways first. A secondary public access area should be last on the List of Action items in Thunder Bay.

I keep seeing on these comments about how the roads in this city are in enter ribald condition with giant potholes and sinkholes everywhere. Where?
Seriously, I see holes every once in awhile but it's not that bad. Thunder Bay doesn't have Toronto quality streets but it's about the same as any other city I have been in in the past yea or so.
If you can name me 10 giant potholes or sinkholes across the whole city I'm all ears.
5, even. Thanks,
