Report calls for more money to fix Dorchester Road


It's going to take a lot more money to fix one of Niagara's worst roads.

A report going to city council Tuesday recommends another $400,000 to rehab Dorchester Road between McLeod Road and Lundy's Lane.

Late last year, council approved a capital budget that included $1.2 million for road resurfacing and rehabilitation in 2018 — $500,000 of that was allocated for Dorchester Road.

A staff report says another $400,000 is needed to address resident complaints, driveability and drainage concerns.

It recommends the money come from the city's federal gas tax program

Dorchester Road shows up in the CAA's Work Roads Campaign.
