A civil engineering professor will be awarded an award of excellence in teaching after being nominated by his students.
Nicholas Vlachopoulos, a professor of civil engineering at Royal Military College, said he is very humbled to have been nominated and chosen by the selection committee to receive the Class of ’65 Award for Teaching Excellence.
The Kingston Whig-Standard
The City of Kingston has been called a “laggard” by a group representing road construction contractors for its low-recorded amounts of recycled concrete and asphalt used in road projects.
In its annual Recycling Concrete and Asphalt Leaders and Laggards rankings from the Toronto Area Road Builders Association, Kingston comes in 12th out of 20 Ontario municipalities with a score of 40, based on a survey distributed by the association.
If elected mayor, Dan Melanson says he would create a panel of experts to study how the city can improve its road repairs.
He said the bad state of Greater Sudbury’s roads is the biggest issue for voters. He noted a new report from the Ontario Road Builders Association reviewed all the issues that negatively affect asphalt quality.
Construction work to replace a bridge in Trout Creek, south of North Bay, is leaving people in the area frustrated.
Originally set to be finished at the end of this month, there have been a number of delays.
Now, people are worried about emergency response times.

The Ontario transportation minister recently paid a visit to the Township of McNab/Braeside to help celebrate the completion of the McLachlan Road reconstruction and rehabilitation project.
The $1.5 million project included the rehabilitation of about 3.3 kilometres of McLachlan Road and the McLeod Road intersection, which addressed not only the poor road condition, but also road width and sightlines to improve overall safety.
U of T Engineering
Forty-five researchers from U of T Engineering have collectively received more than $4.4 million in research funding and scholarships from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
The funding is being distributed through Discovery Grants, which were announced by NSERC in October. In total, nearly 4,300 award recipients from across Canada received more than $558 million in support.

More than a decade after it was first proposed by TransCanada Corp., the Keystone XL project is moving closer to the construction phase in Canada and the U.S., despite legal obstacles facing the company.
Preliminary work has begun on the pipeline route in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Montana and South Dakota — except for the state of Nebraska, where it faces a legal challenge, a TransCanada spokesperson told the Financial Post.
