Krpan Group says work to be completed in next two to three months

The unopened stretch of Clappison Avenue that would connect Dundas Street and Parkside Drive in Waterdown has now been registered, but an exact timeline for its opening is not known.
JUST THE FACTS
• City of Hamilton spokesperson Emily Trotta said in an email on June 25 that the roadway from Parkside Drive to the Borer’s Creek drainage channel was registered as a city public highway on Jan. 14. The section of the roadway from Dundas Street to the bridge was registered in April 2007.
• In November 2020, Ward 15 Coun. Judi Partridge said the bridge and paving of the section of roadway over the creek was complete, but was delayed due to a land registration issue.
• The oft-delayed project was previously delayed due to turtle eggs, as well as a significant number of archeological artifacts being found in the area.
• Trotta, speaking on behalf of the city’s growth management division, said the opening on Clappison Avenue is “dependent on the approvals and completion of street lighting, pavement markings and pedestrian crossings.”
• John A. Krpan of Krpan Group Management Inc., which is developing the area, said they just received approval from the city for the work last week.
“We are now able to schedule the works and order materials and are hoping to have these works completed over the next two to three months,” he said
