Reconstruction of Dominion Road (Regional Road 1) in Fort Erie

Be advised that The Regional Municipality of Niagara (The Region) will be reconstructing Regional Road 1 (Dominion Road) from Buffalo Road to Burleigh Road to improve infrastructure and road platform deficiencies.

This contract will be carried out for the Region by Beam Rankin Joint Venture Inc.

Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin late this October, early November and will be continuous until completion, likely spring of 2019, weather permitting.

The project involves the reconstruction and infrastructure improvements on Regional Road 1 (Dominion Road), between Buffalo Road and Burleigh Road. The improvements will include, but not be limited to, replacement of existing watermain, full reconstruction of the roadway and regrading of ditches, intersection illumination and minor rehabilitation of the existing bridge over Six Mile Creek. The watermain portions of the proposed works include replacement of the existing Regional Transmission watermain from Rosehill Road to Bernard Avenue and a new Town of Fort Erie watermain from Rosehill Road to Barrington Court.

Every effort will be made to maintain access to abutting properties and to minimize inconvenience to businesses, residents and pedestrians. The main point of contact on this project will be Mr. Sto Tritchew, Project Manager of the project team, Beam Rankin Joint Venture Inc. and he can be contacted for information or to identify concerns. Mr. Henry Vangameren, cell phone 905-905-327-3811 will be the Region’s onsite field liaison representative.

Periodically, there will be some inconvenience to you during the construction period. Due to the scope of work involved, driveway access may be affected. Every effort will be made to give you advance notice should this occur. Staff from Beam Rankin Joint Venture Inc. will be contacting you to discuss details of your driveway entrance. In order to protect construction workers and complete the work safely and cost effectively, temporary lane closures may be required and traffic will be unavoidably congested at these times. Such closures will be minimized as much as possible; however, at such times, the contractor will provide traffic control personnel. Although the contractor is required to provide safe pedestrian access at all times, care is requested when walking through the construction zone.

Should you have any questions or encounter any problems during the work, please feel free to approach the project team’s lead, Mr. Sto Tritchew, 905-684-1111. You may also contact one of the following individuals:
