Oyster Bay Drive to be closed as storm sewer is replaced

There’s a lot of activity on Oyster Bay Drive these days, and it’s because the Town of Ladysmith is replacing a storm sewer.

The storm sewer was installed many years ago, and it has collapsed, explained John Manson, the Town’s director of infrastructure services.

Manson says the storm sewer is quite far down, so they have to remove a lot of dirt.

Workers will have to cross Oyster Bay Drive, and the street will be closed “for a very short time,” according to Manson.

Manson says the street will be fully closed for a day or two in the next few weeks as the storm sewer is replaced.

“We’ll try to maintain single-lane traffic as much as possible,” he said.
