Bridge closure: Haldimand-Dunnville Townline Rd.

As granular road conversion work on Haldimand-Dunnville Townline Rd was progressing, crews observed cracking on the bridge’s exposed deck. Bridge engineers from G. Douglas Vallee Limited were called to inspect the structure and recommended that the bridge should be permanently closed.

Temporary road closure signage has been put in place, and a formal detour route will be set up in the coming days. Throughout the duration of the closure, there will be no vehicular or pedestrian traffic allowed over the bridge. The process to design a replacement structure will begin immediately.

It is anticipated that the bridge will be replaced & re-open to traffic in the fall of 2020. We appreciate your understanding and patience, and apologize for any inconvenience this closure may cause.

Notice of Commencement: LPRCA Flood Hazard Mapping & Risk Assessment

The Project

The Long Point Region Conservation Authority (LRPCA) is updating and creating new flood hazard mapping for approximately 91 kilometres of watercourses within its jurisdiction. The LRPCA is focusing this work on the most flood vulnerable communities within its watershed, with financial support from the National Disaster Mitigation Program. Accurate floodplain mapping is critical to minimizing the risk to life and property, supporting flood emergency response, planning for long-term mitigation measures, and supporting land use and development planning.

This Project will provide updated flood hazard mapping for the subject areas, as well as a risk assessment for the flood hazard mapping areas, at-risk structures and infrastructure, and associated flood damage potential.

Community Engagement

Engagement with the public is a critical component of this Project and will include two sessions of Public Information Centres (PICs). Each session will occur at three locations within the study area in collaboration with the local municipalities. The first session will provide the public with the opportunity to review the preliminary flood hazard mapping and provide insight into local conditions and flooding history. The second session will present the updated flood hazard mapping and associated risk assessment.
