Millennium Recreational Trail Section 5
The completion of the Millennium Trail Section 5 along the north side of the OPG Corridor between Dorchester Road and Drummond Road. Additional works include detail design/construction of the Dorchester cycle track (connection to section 6) and detail design/construction for the connection to section 1 along Drummond Road and Morrison Street. OPG fencing cost sharing is also included.
City of Niagara Falls Staff has been actively coordinating with both the Region of Niagara and the Ontario Power Generation (O.P.G.) on all projects earmarked for construction through the existing O.P.G Hydro Canal Corridor. Unfortunately, the complexity of these projects and contractor scheduling has postponed the construction of the Millennium Recreational Trail Section 5 to late spring-early summer of 2019.
Currently O.P.G.’s General Contractor Newman Bros. Limited has commenced with the new fence installation along the hydro canal between Drummond Road and Dorchester Road with anticipated completion for early October 2018. The Region of Niagara is finalizing the procurement and awarding of a contractor to complete a Rehabilitation of the Stamford Interceptor that runs along the same O.P.G. Hydro Corridor. The Regional work is proposed to follow the O.P.G fence installation.
Later this Fall (2018) Staff propose tendering the Millennium Recreational Trail Section 5 including the connection to the Paisley Janvary Pool Pathway Trail along the Drummond Road and Morrison Street Right-of-Way. Staff anticipates the construction for the Millennium Recreational Trail Section 5 to be completed in summer of 2019. The property will remain closed to the Public as it currently is until that time.
