Argyle St. Bridge replacement project update (MTO)

The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) and its contractor, Dufferin Construction Company, has begun repair work to the Argyle Street Bridge. The project is anticipated to be complete in August 2019. The work includes the addition of structural steel support beams to three spans of the bridge.

May 22, 2019 Update:

The Westerly (upstream) sidewalk closure will be installed this week.  Pedestrian detour signage will be in place at the Riverwalk, Argyle and Caithness, and at the southerly end of the bridge.

Overnight closures will begin the week of June 3. The bridge will be completely closed at night for the week of June 3 to 7 and June 10 to 14.  The closures will be from 9:15pm to 6:00 am.  The Friday night closure will be from 9:00 PM to 7:00 am.  The remaining closures can be expected closer to the end of the project

The MTO has coordinated with county emergency services to ensure that a response plan is in place for the closures.

The bridge will remain open to traffic during the day, with only very short duration closures for the delivery of material. During that time, flagmen will be in place to direct traffic.

Project updates, including any changes to detour routes, will be posted here as they are provided by the MTO.

Filming Notification: Cayuga Administration Building – May 23

On Thursday, May 23, Haldimand County’s Cayuga Administration Building (45 Munsee St. N, Cayuga) will be used as a film set.

The Cayuga Administration Building will remain open throughout filming, however, the front access (facing Munsee St.), parking area and elevator will be unavailable for the full business day (8:30am – 4:30pm). Parking on Echo St. and Ottawa St. will also be limited on May 23 to accommodate filming.

Residents may notice some peculiarities with the building’s frontage including: the Haldimand County sign being covered and the Canadian, Provincial & County flags being replaced with American, New York State and fictional town flags. New York state police vehicles will also be present at the front of the building.

There may be intermittent traffic stoppages on Munsee St. N as a result of the filming. The front of the building will be a closed set area and it would be appreciated if the public stay well back from the set.
