Niagara Stone Road in Virgil is getting a facelift and residents can learn more about the work being done before the shovels hit the ground.

The Region of Niagara is holding an information session from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 25, in the Simpson Room at the NOTL Community Centre.

“It’s a long time coming,” Lord Mayor Gary Zalepa said of the planned improvements.

The reconstruction will include new sidewalks; street lighting; landscaping; parks and parkettes at Four Mile Creek Road and Niagara Stone Road, Field Road and Niagara Stone Road and Line 1 and Niagara Stone Road; replacement signals at Line 1 and Four Mile Creek, and new crosswalks at the intersections.

According to a public notice, the region conducted an environmental assessment on the stretch of Niagara Stone Road between Four Mile Creek and Line 1 in 2015.

Now, seven years later, the region finally is ready to move forward.

Zalepa said there have been “pressures on the infrastructure” for a long time.

Information about the project is available on the region’s website here.
