A nine-week project to update the Muskoka Wharf Boardwalk is beginning next week. The project is going to replace sections of the existing deck boards and underlying framework timber. The work is going to happen in stages so the boardwalk won’t be dismantled all at once, which means there will be some areas available for the public to use. Gravenhurst says the areas under construction will be clearly marked. The town also notes full parking availability will be limited, but it will make sure all businesses in the area will be accessible.

Gravenhurst’s Director of Infrastructure Services, Andrew Stacey, says this project was originally approved as part of the 2017 Capital Plan. He says it will improve the aesthetic and functionality of the boardwalk infrastructure, so it’s safe and enjoyable for everyone. He also notes the town is happy the contractor is able to get the project off the ground before the busy tourism season starts.

The project begins on March 26th.
