Belle River Construction Hurts Business

Construction has once again shut down a portion of Notre Dame St. in Belle River, forcing businesses to find ways to attract customers.

Mr. Biggs is one which is placing a large sign on detour roads directing traffic.

Owner Kelly Fazio says they have to do everything they can to attract customers. “Our neighbours were very gracious and have an understanding how difficult this is. They’ve already granted us permission and the sign is already there. We just wanted to do it right an seek the support of council.”

Despite the business concerns, Fazio says the street will be beautiful once it’s finished. She jokingly suggests holding an end of the construction party along the street.
