Residents opposed to the project are balking at a proposal that would delay a final decision on the fate of the Flying J truck-stop development. A pretrial hearing in front of an Ontario Municipal Board adjudicator was held on Wednesday.

Flying J is seeking approval for build of a seven-million dollar truck stop at the intersection of the Thunder Bay Expressway and Oliver Road. At the hearing, representatives of the company asked for a delay in the proceeding that would allow them to revise their site plan and to produce technical studies in response to neighbor concerns. It's a proposal that would push back a decision on the matter until spring.

The current schedule calls for the final hearing to be held in October and opponents of the project say they wish to stick to that schedule. Both sides have been given three weeks to make submissions on the issue. A decision on revisions to the schedule will be announced sometime next month.
