Here is the status update for Winston Churchill Boulevard (WCB) project from 1.2 Km south of Ballinafad Road to Olde Base Line Road, we would like to provide you with the follow update:

As concluded in the approved Environmental Assessment Study for WCB, this section of road will require full reconstruction, including drainage improvements, culvert replacements, reconstruction of the roadway, and improvement of sightlines at intersections and driveways. In order to coordinate the various aspects of the project, it has been necessary to carry out comprehensive consultation with the approving agencies including Credit Valley Conservation, Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry and the Niagara Escarpment Commission. Due to the sensitivity of the area as well as competing concerns over the natural and environmental features, the detailed design phase and permitting phase have taken longer than originally anticipated. Currently, the design is at the 60% stage and the Region is required to meet certain criteria in order to obtain approvals from the above agencies.

The revised schedule is to complete the design by this summer. Once the design is completed, the project will move to the property acquisition stage followed by utility relocation which will take at least 12 months to complete. Therefore, construction is tentatively scheduled to commence in 2018.

 

With regards to WCB from Old School Road to King Street, we will be under construction once the weather improves & complete the road resurfacing by the end of 2016.
