The “stop up and close” of Clinic Road in Morrisburg became official on June 26th with the passing of a by-law during the South Dundas council meeting.
Clerk Brenda Brunt told council that there would be an easement for Morrisburg Public School’s (MPS) snow removal.
The MPS crossing guard station at the corner of Clinic Road and Ottawa Street will be rerouted to Second Street for the coming school year in September.
Chief administrative officer Stephen McDonald said that “closing Clinic Road will have no impact on the parking area” for the clinic.
The road closure was just one of many necessary steps in remaking the old high school.
According to McDonald, “tenders on the high school project have been invited from six pre-qualified general contractors.”
“Tenders close in July and a recommendation will then go forward to council.”
Until that time, information on when and how construction will proceed is unavailable.
