Former restaurant demolished


It’s the end of the road for the former Treetop Restaurant on Highway 17 in Chalk River.

Pat Stewart Trucking was on site with an excavator Monday demolishing the remains of the former popular local eatery.

The restaurant has been closed and the site closed off with protective fencing since the building’s roof collapsed last March due to the extreme snow load.

There are no details as to plans for the site once the demolition and cleanup has been completed.
