I was in contact with the Ainley Group which is the construction company that has been working on hwy 127 to find out what the black barriers on the hwy were for and how the replacement of the culverts and how this was going to affect us here on Mink Lake. The following is the response recieved,
Details on the Hwy. 127 work per our discussion;
- Exclusionary Silt fence is being installed in advance of the construction as a preventative measure for turtle nesting – fence is installed to prevent turtles from accessing the granular shoulder to nest.
- Construction is anticipated to start in late June or early July with completion in the fall.
- There are no full road closures required. Traffic impacts will include single lane closures to allow for culvert replacement operations and resurfacing.
- There will be some night work require and the Ministry has obtained a noise by-law exemption in order to do so.
If you have any other inquiries please feel free to contact us.
