Public information session to discuss the reconstruction of the section of Lundy’s Lane planned for June

Niagara Region is hosting a virtual public information session in June to gather feedback from residents and stakeholders as part of an environmental assessment study for upcoming improvements to Lundy’s Lane.

The study area is a busy 1.8 kilometer four-lane section from Highland Avenue to Montrose Road.

Lundy’s Lane is a major road that stretches from Allanport Road in Thorold to Main Street in Niagara Falls.

Niagara Region said records show there are a high number of collisions involving vehicles, as well as vehicles and pedestrians, in the region.

The municipal environmental assessment will be based on recommendations from the area’s transportation master plan, which included intersection improvements and improvements to roadway safety and operations.

Backgrounders related to the online public information session, the second of four scheduled sessions, will be available on the project website – NiagaraRegion.ca/projects/lundys-lane – beginning June 8 and comments will be received until July 6.

A study team will present online June 22 starting at 6 p.m.

Michael Kowalczyk, project manager at the region’s transport and engineering department, said the session will give the survey team an opportunity to share information on the current status of the project and gather feedback. public and stakeholder feedback.

“Niagara Region wants to hear from anyone interested in the community, especially those who live or work in the area where construction will take place,” he said.

The municipal environmental assessment process, he said, is used to identify needs and opportunities for improvements within the project boundary. The study will develop and evaluate alternatives for improvement.

The next stage of the project, said Kowalczyk, will be to choose the preferred planning alternative and evaluate various design alternatives.

Design alternatives will be presented at a third information session scheduled for September.

Detailed designs are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2023, with construction expected to begin in 2025.
