TRCA Commences Humber River Bank Stabilization Work in Bolton

Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) is preparing to undertake bank stabilization and trail improvement works along a section of Humber River near 60 Ann Street in the Town of Caledon. The site is located north of King Street West and west of Queen Street North. The purpose of this project is to protect a section of the Humber Valley Heritage Trail, which is under threat due to channel migration and bank erosion. The bank will be stabilized using a vegetated rock buttress. As part of the scope of work, the existing wooden staircase will be disassembled and replaced with a re-graded trail to improve public access.
Construction is scheduled to commence August 16, 2012 pending the receipt of the necessary approvals and will take approximately eight (8) weeks to complete. Final site restoration (e.g. tree planting, asphalt repairs, etc.), will be completed following construction, as weather conditions permit.
During construction, equipment and material will be stored in an existing parking lot within Dick’s Dam Park as shown on the map. While the areas of work will be marked with signage and isolated with temporary fencing, in the interest of public safety, TRCA requests that people exercise caution and stay clear of the site while construction is underway.

  • Thanks,Patty. I live at the top of the ravine and like to know when work is being done. I have heard noises like chainsaws in the past, and called TRCA to confirm work activity. Feel protective of this glorious resource. You’re doing a great job with your various communications! Elizabeth
