Today’s #BridgingForTheFuture Throwback Thursday features a photo courtesy of Elgin County Archives and from the Ian D. Cameron Collection showcasing the coal-powered steamboat “Laura” navigating the inner harbour.

Landform Civil Infrastructure crews continue removal of the existing traffic gate bases, and are finishing installation of the gas service to the new emergency standby generators, and the wiring and conduit for the new traffic gates. Further, the east pedestal for the low speed machinery has been cleaned and coated, and the west low speed machinery has been removed and sent offsite to be refurbished.

Next week, crews will install the concrete bases for the replacement traffic gates, and will continue installing new conduit and wiring in the trunnion pits and control towers.

Supporting our Businesses!

With provincial restrictions beginning to ease allowing in-person services, shopping, and increased dining options, supporting our small businesses continues to be so important! We know safety is top of mind as well, and everyone is continuing to work hard to follow guidelines and safety measures. Next week, we’ll begin to showcase #PortStanley businesses.
