While the design of the final phase of the Lake-to-Lake Bike Route has just gotten underway, public works are also busy repairing damage to a finished stretch.

A section of the Duncan Avenue stretch of the bike lane was damaged overnight, although the city is not sure of the exact cause.

Signs were torn out of the concrete barriers, along with a chunk of concrete.

The repairs are expected to be completed within the next week.

According to Shane Mills, communications for the city, the costs of the repair are expected to be less than $1,000.
