The City of Kenora is set to resume work on the East Melick Road and Essex Road intersection to lay a top surface to build up the road and open it.

This work is expected to take one day.

The city says the work can be completed because the water in that area has shown some consistency over the last week.

Upon completion the city will focus on the flooded area of East Melick Road that is 500m north of Bells Point Road, similar efforts will be made to raise the roadway to a safe level as has been completed near the Essex Road intersection.

Weather and water levels permitting, this work is anticipated to take approximately one week.

As early as Friday, May 20th evening, residents who live along East Melick Road between the Portier bridge and the Essex Road intersection (this includes Victoria Crescent, Decemvir Dr, Bell Point Road and Aube Dr) should have access back to their homes.
