About the Project

Niagara Region is undertaking the reconstruction of Canborough Rd. (Regional Rd. 63) from Coffey Bridge to Baldwin Rd. in the Township of West Lincoln.

Embankment stability at the site has been an ongoing concern for years, with the first studies to address the condition completed by Terraprobe Limited in 1978.

The reconstruction will address the slope stability issues along the Welland River in accordance with the previously completed Feasibility Study - Embankment Stabilization (completed in 2016) .

The proposed works are to include:

  • The installation of 150m of 16m sheet pile walls
  • The replacement of existing culverts and regarding of existing ditches
  • The reconstruction of Regional Rd. 63 to a rural cross-section with roadside ditches and two 3.5m through lanes (one in each direction) with 1.5m paved shoulders
  • The reinstatement of guiderail and installation of new signage
