Thunder Bay – Algoma Street Frost Heave

A severe frost heave on Algoma Street in front of the Italian Cultural Centre.  The section of Algoma Street that was reconstructed five and a half years ago.

Something under the asphalt is holding moisture.  Clay?  Organic material?  Anyway, that moisture freezes and expands.

I rode the bus today as it went over that heave and I kid you not…I was airborne. My but actually left the seat.  It is brutal.

You can see the heave in the photo
