Gov't Looking At Options To Fix Lorneville Road

Homes and businesses on the Lorneville Road are still accessible but a pipe failure under the Lorneville causeway leaving part of Lorneville Road closed to thru traffic in both directions because of safety concerns over a sinkhole.

Transportation Minister Claude Williams tells CHSJ News they'll have a better idea what to do about that this week. 

Williams says that was one of the pieces of infrastructure they needed to look into and there was some inspection done last summer, but you can't predict mother nature. He says this year they are dealing with over a million dollars in flood damage.

That part of Lorneville Road was flagged as a possible danger spot seven years ago.
