A section of the Niagara Parks recreation trail and part of the Niagara Parkway will be closed temporarily this month to accommodate infrastructure improvements, the Niagara Parks Commission says.
On Monday, Dec. 4, a culvert replacement project will begin along the Parkway near Service Road 70. The project involves the culvert beneath the recreation trail and will result in the trail being inaccessible.
It is anticipated that the work will take two weeks to complete, weather permitting. Flag operators will be on hand to ensure safe traffic flow while the project is underway.
Once the work is completed, the recreation trail will be reopened in this area.
Additionally the agency will be replacing the pedestrian bridge along the Niagara River Recreation Trail at the intersection of the Parkway and Line 3, resulting in the closure of the intersection for two days on Dec. 14 and 15.
The road shutdown will require a detour around the area via Line 2, Line 4 and Concession 1. The road is scheduled reopen on Saturday, Dec. 16.
The project is part of the $1.3 million in work budgeted by Niagara Parks for improvements along the north Niagara Parkway for 2023-24.
