Victoria Avenue work requires extra $230K
From the Niagara Falls Review:
Council approved an additional $230,000 to complete the first phase of a streetscape project along Victoria Avenue.
The extra expense will come out of the city’s capital holding reserve fund and will address unanticipated intersection work, as well as additional consultant services.
Earlier this year, council entered into a cost-sharing arrangement with the Victoria Centre Business Improvement Association for a $3.8-million revitalization from Highway 420 to Clifton Hill/Centre Street. The city agreed to a strict construction timeline, at the request of the BIA.
Construction began this spring, but stopped during July and August to not disrupt the busy tourism season. Work is scheduled to resume after Labour Day, and is expected to be mostly completed by November.
