      • Temporary Closure - Millennium Trail from Whirlpool Rd to Thorold Stone Rd

        Description

        The Millennium Trail from Whirlpool Road to Thorold Stone Road will have limited access during select periods this summer.

        Stanley Transmission Station (TS) is owned by Hydro One Networks Inc. and situated on Ontario Power Generation property on Stanley Avenue, immediately south of the Region of Niagara Waste Water Treatment Station.  The City of Niagara Falls Millennium Trail, including its access points from Stanley Avenue are located on all sides of the Stanley TS enclosure and is pursuant to a license agreement with OPG.

        Hydro One must undertake work at Stanley Transmission Station (TS) that will expand the footprint of the TS enclosure. Therefore public access between the TS and the OPG Power Canal must be restricted until this work is completed.

        The trail will be closed during these dates:

        August 18, 2019 to August 23, 2019 in order to string new conductors.

        September 23, 2019 to September 27, 2019 in order to remove the old conductors.

        During these identified times of disruption, Hydro One will have spotters on either side of the trail as the conductors are moved to ensure the safety of the public.  

        Hydro One will provide signs regarding the closure and post them on the construction fence.

        Thank you for your cooperation and patience during this work.
