Niagara Stone Road in Niagara-on-the-Lake torn up for next three months

Ontarians like to joke that the four seasons in this Province are actually “Almost Winter, Winter, After Winter and Construction.”

Niagara-on-the-Lake residents will know that feeling all too well starting Monday (July 19) as Niagara Stone Road begins three months of construction.

Watermain replacement and improvement on the road (also known as King’s Highway 55) will take up to 12 weeks as O’Hara Trucking and Excavating is coming in to replace 1,300 metres of PVC piping along the road, stretching from south of Line 4 Road right up to Line 3 Road.

While no road closures are expected during the construction, the Town did note there would certainly be moments of inconvenience for Niagara Stone Road residents.

Among those would be getting your lawn torn up near the road. However, they assured residents, “Sod restorations will begin when all water system replacements and transfers are complete and as weather permits.”

As well, residents can expect to see ongoing construction from dawn to dusk as they noted, “Regular working hours are from 7 am to 5 pm These hours are consistent with the Town bylaws. Staff understands this may cause some inconvenience, but a shorter working day would mean the project would take longer to complete.”

And, of course, there’s the matter of access to a residents’ driveway. “Due to construction activities, workers may need to block your driveway for a short time. You will be contacted prior to this to arrange for the best time and alternate access if needed.”

The Town added, “If your driveway is blocked, you may choose to park on the street for a short time. If you need immediate access to your driveway, the Contractor will make arrangements to quickly allow access in and out of your driveway.”
