In March

Lower Montcalm Road remains closed

The future of Warfield’s Lower Montcalm Road will rest on a feasibility study.

The future of Warfield’s Lower Montcalm Road will rest on a feasibility study.

In March, a bank gave way in Annable and caused damage to respective water lines. The repairs have been completed, but land instability surrounding Lower Montcalm Road has forced closure of the popular back route.

“Currently we have the road blocked off and are getting a feasibility study to return the road to either a driving road or a walking path,” Mayor Diane Langman told the Trail Times. “Depending on what the cost estimates come back as will determine how council will proceed. Either way, we will hold a public meeting to inform residents of the findings before we vote on anything.”

Council’s plate has been full since their swearing in one month ago (March 10) aside from dealing with core services. The group has been working on the 2017 budget, though capital plans such as major infrastructure projects, are still taking shape.

Langman added, “We have not yet finalized our budget so I can’t say definitively what will be in there.”
