Still No Timeline For Re-Opening Goderich Beachfront

Goderich | by Peter Jackson  

Nearly two weeks after crews began work to stabilize the shoreline, Mayor John Grace says project will take time to complete.

Work on stabilizing the Lake Huron shore by the Goderich water plant has been going on for around two weeks now, and quick progress is being made.

Goderich Council this week was brought up to speed by engineer Dale Erb of BM Ross and Associates, which is one of the lead participants in the project.

Huron District Contracting is doing the heavy work, placing large armour stones along a stretch of beach that was heavily impacted by wave action in a November windstorm.

In late November Director of Operations Chip Wilson told Council that rising lake levels predicted by Environment Canada add urgency to complete the work as quickly as possible.

Mayor John Grace says the town is lending its resources to the project, with public works staff working alongside the contractor.

Grace urges that residents be patient, because the project will take time to complete.

He also asks locals to not try to get to the beach along South Harbour Road, for their own safety.

South Harbour Road is blocked off except for work vehicles, until further notice.
