Clappison Drive connecting to Parkside Drive between Stryker and Boston Pizza
Construction of Clappison Drive over Borers Creek is well underway, expected to be complete by mid December. The bridge over Borers Creek will be completed soon with the final road construction, paving, curbs etc to follow. This road access will allow traffic to divert off of Hollybush Drive to Clappison Drive connecting residents to the Clappison Power Centre, No Frills, Boston Pizza, etc. and Clappison Corners.
This infrastructure work involves blasting of rock for the bridge footings. The blasting subcontractor will ensure that safety protocols for blasting are implemented, and that prior to each blast, any pedestrians using the nearby trail are stopped and kept back at a safe distance. Safety measures will be in place throughout the construction phase. The blasting is scheduled to be complete mid October.
Waterdown East West Corridor Construction is Now Underway!
This major road (Bypass) project in Waterdown is currently under construction and is being undertaken in three phases:
