The cost for a road and water line project Kimberly Avenue just went up.

After an explosion damaged multiple homes along the Bracebridge street in August, the district dropped Coon Bros. as the project contract and signed on with Fowler to finish the work.

That has increased the overall cost of the project by $500,000 to just over $1.8 million.

The extra cost will be split between the district and Bracebridge.
