Stage four of Kenora's Downtown revitalization is set to begin this year.
Part of the proposed revitalization plan is a new roundabout. Economic Development Officer Megan Dokuchie explains where it would be located.
"It is one of the activities as part of a larger project. But the roundabout itself is proposed to be located at the intersection of Park Street, First Street, and Fifth Avenue South," she said.
Essentially, the roundabout would be where the mall sign currently stands.
The main focus of this stage of revitalization is the Chipman Street and First Street South area. Part of the work includes a proposed road realignment of First Street South. The roundabout would be part of this realignment.
Dokuchie said plans are on hold currently as the city waits for a few more pieces of the puzzle.
"So right now the city is positioning to move forward with the project in 2019, but we still have a bit of information that we're waiting for. We're still waiting on decisions for funding applications that we've submitted, but we're still hoping to move forward in 2019," she said.
Dokuchie said they plan to host a forum for the public to view and ask questions about the the revitalization plans
Total cost of the project is $6.85 million.
