November 8, 2017

The City of Dryden advises that the skywalk elevator located on Queen Street (southside) remains out of service.  The elevating device sustained major water damage earlier this year and continued efforts to repair it have been unsuccessful.  The City is currently investigating options for its complete refurbishing or replacement.

It is anticipated the elevator may be out of service for up to 6 months while this matter is being addressed and the City of Dryden apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.

Should you require additional information or have concerns please contact Bob Cunningham, Building & Planning Manager, at 223-1140, 221-8140 or e-mail

There are no other disruption of service notices at this time.
