Transforming 2nd Concession

2nd Concession has undergone major improvements and the road is scheduled to be fully transformed by summer 2017. We recognize construction can be disruptive and are making every effort to minimize disruption to those living, working and travelling in the area, and keep all informed with regular updates. Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout this construction period.

2nd Concession construction update

2nd Concession between Green Lane and Mount Albert Road re-opened to traffic last fall, but remains an active construction site until summer 2017. Please reduce your speed through the area.

When construction resumes this spring it will include:

  • Final construction of the bridges over the Holland River and train tracks and pedestrian bridge
  • Completing the Nokiidaa Trail connection
  • Landscaping
  • Final paving

Safety is a top priority on all Regional construction sites. Please contact us if you observe any unsafe issues in and around this site.2nd Concession construction update

Get outdoors this summer

The Nokiidaa Trail connection and boardwalk will re-open this summer once construction is complete. Upon opening, we encourage you to enjoy the outdoors by taking advantage of the many enhancements made in and around Rogers Reservoir and the Nokiidaa Trail.

Interconnected enhancements will allow pedestrians and cyclists to:

  • Cross below 2nd Concession at the new Nokiidaa Trail crossing, eliminating the need to cross the road
  • View the Holland River locks from lookouts along the trail
  • Enjoy the new boardwalk
  • Enjoy future trail connections to the new Sharon development

The new train crossing also allows trains to proceed without crossing the road, eliminating the need to blow whistles in the
residential area..
