Just six months after an extensive rebuild of South Harbour Road in Goderich, part of it has had to be dug up again.
Mayor John Grace says part of the new infrastructure laid under the street had to be repaired.
He adds that a water pipe sprang a leak, which made the dig necessary.
Grace says the asphalt surface of the street leading to the beach area will be cold-patched for now, with a more permanent repair to come in the spring.
The Mayor says the cause of the water pipe leak may be a minor shift in the ground under the street.
