Spring Construction In Port Stanley

Spring construction in Port Stanley this year is different than last year, mostly due to construction projects along major roadways that caused major traffic disruptions like the Carlow Road Bridge Street intersection are almost completed. The new Port Stanley Tourism Office to be located in Pumping Station 52 at that busy intersection should have all outside restoration and landscape work completed by the May 24th weekend.

Work on the Berm has resumed on the final stages of risk management measures to enable a parkland use standard as part of the transfer agreement by Transport Canada. Some drainage areas on the Berm also have to enlarged to meet increased drainage demands. The final topsoil cap is currently being installed, after which a grass seed mixture and a protective netting cover will be installed over the cap. By summer the Berm should have a new green landscape ready for the next stage in the Harbour Plan.

The construction of a Erie Rest Beach parking lot at the end of Bartholomew is in limbo as the location can not be approved by Kettle Creek Conservation Area because it is within a dynamic beach zone. Kettle Creek Conservation Area staff have also agreed that they would be open to consider the area for the construction of the parking lot provided it was reviewed and confirmed by a qualified coastal engineer that the area was not within a dynamic beach zone. The cost to complete the review and provide a report acceptable to the conservation authority is estimated at $7,500 and will be funded from the approved budget for the project.
