Red River Road Repair Work Continues


June 7, 2013 – Road and repair work following the gas line leak that occurred on Thursday at Red River Road continues. Red River Road is open at Hill Street, but restricted to local residential and business traffic between Summit Avenue and Rupert Street. The road is expected to re-open fully Saturday, once all work is complete.

An investigation of the incident, focusing on the utility locates process, is underway.

“Employee and public safety is paramount,” said Darrell Matson, General Manager – Infrastructure & Operations. “Administration will be reporting on the cause of this specific incident once the investigation is complete.”

“Thunder Bay Fire Rescue, in cooperation with other responding agencies, took all appropriate measures during this incident to assess and respond,” said Deputy Fire Chief Greg Hankkio.

Motorists are asked to take an alternate route.
