Lincoln, ON – (March 7, 2018) – On March 5, 2018, the Town received official notification from the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) that the Jordan Village improvement project may proceed.
The improvement project, a total investment of approximately $6.4 million through completion, will include:
- A realigned intersection at 19th & King St. with a traffic signal
- Main street pedestrian-friendly square/gathering area
- A new street Snure Lane will be constructed between 19th St. & Main St.
- Upgrading 19th St & Main St. to a full urban streetscaped standard with a strong focus on:
- Active transportation
- Pedestrian safety
- Traffic calming
- Parking opportunities
- Pedestrian and vehicle square
- Streetscaping & beautification
- Stormwater drainage
- Parking enhancements
The project had paused as a result of two Part ll orders being filed on the project. The MOECC concluded that an individual environmental assessment is not required, but the following conditions were included:
- Consider dedicated cycle lanes as part of the final design for the proposed Project
- Hold at least one public open house during the detailed design phase of the project to discuss the final design of the pedestrian open space on Main Street. The final design must be posted on the Project's website.
- Consult with the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority during the detailed design phase of the project to determine additional mitigation measures and quality control measures for stormwater runoff within the project area
The Town and Niagara Region will now move forward on the detailed-design phase. The Town is committed to keeping residents and businesses informed on the status of the project, along with additional engagement on this project throughout the applicable milestones.
