In a meeting recently with Aldershot Councillor Kelvin Galbraith, we discussed the upcoming closure of Waterdown Road, south of Flatt Road for 6-8 weeks during July and August 2021. The closure is part of the city of Burlington multi-year widening and reconstruction of Waterdown Road.
The following information is from The Bay Observer article written by Rick Craven:
Waterdown Road in Aldershot, a major north south route, will be completely closed at one location for several weeks later this year.
Councillor Kelvin Galbraith disclosed the restriction during a virtual public meeting last night. “That will be very disruptive….We just learned of it this week”.
The closure is part of the multi-year widening and reconstruction of Waterdown Road.
According to Engineer Jeff Thompson, who also spoke at the meeting, the planned closure is a new development made necessary by the Region of Halton’s decision to replace a watermain in the area. “Due to safety concerns it’s just not safe to keep the road open” he said.
The road will be closed south of Flatt Road in the area of the Regional reservoir, preventing north south movement.
Thompson said more information on the closure will be made available to the public as soon as possible.
