The City of Niagara Falls, in partnership with Niagara Region, is undertaking a study of the impact of Canadian National (CN) Railway train operations within the City’s urban boundary. This will include a consideration of impacts on the transportation network, emergency service response, residents, businesses / commerce, environment and safety.
Preliminary recommendations will first explore all feasible opportunities to relocate through freight operations onto other active rail corridors, and secondly by evaluating strategic grade separation candidate sites.
Two public open house events will be held as part of this study. The first Open House is planned for April 26, 2018, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (presentation at 6:30 PM) at the MacBain Community Centre.
The purpose of this event is to introduce the study, identify the key objectives and provide an overview of the rail operations review, traffic modelling and socio-economic assessment. The second Open House will be planned for May 31, 2018 to present the preliminary recommendations.
Posting Dates4/12/2018 to 6/1/2018
