Kenora residents are invited to an info session Tuesday November 20, which will focus on the Highway 17 Four-Laning between the Manitoba Ontario Border and Kenora.
Diane Schwartz-Williams is with the Lake of the Woods District Property Owners Association, and they're encouraging the public to attend.
She explained what will be disscussed.
"The first 6.75 km, or Section #1 as they've called it, is what the consultant and Ministry of Transportation will be discussing and presenting," she said.
Schwartz-Williams said it will be a good opportunity for residents to find out more about the planning twinning of the highway.
"It will be a good chance to see what is being proposed, to ask questions, provide input, and make their voice heard," she explained.
The Study is being carried out in three sections:
Section #1: Between the Manitoba/Ontario Border and Highway 673
Section #2: Between Highway 673 and Rush Bay Road
Section #3: Between Rush Bay Road and Highway 17A
There will be more sessions focusing on Section #2 and Section #3 going forward, this first meeting kicks off the process.
The event is being hosted by the Ministry of Transportation. LOWDPOA will mearly be attended as an interested party in the twinning of Highway 17.
The information session will be taking place at the Clarion Lakeside Inn in Kenora, from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m.
