NOTICE OF PUBLIC INFORMATION CENTRE
WATERMAIN REPLACEMENT, STORM SEWER INSTALLATION & ROAD RECONSTRUCTION ON REGIONAL ROAD 50 (NIAGARA STREET)
FROM THOROLD ROAD TO RIVERBANK STREET
CITY OF WELLAND

Project Background

The Niagara Region (the Region) and the City of Welland (the City) will be undertaking rehabilitation and improvement works along Regional Road 50 (Niagara Street) between Thorold Road and Riverbank Street (see key map below). Currently, Niagara Street consists of two lanes with substandard curb and sidewalk. The existing watermain has reached the end of its useful life and the storm water is currently flowing into a combined storm-sanitary system. The proposed upgrades to Niagara Street include new watermain, a separate storm system, and an urban cross-section consisting of curb and gutter, sidewalks and bicycle facilities. In addition, intersection upgrades, including turning lanes, where deemed necessary, will be incorporated.
