Port Granby Project underpass construction and Lakeshore Road detour complete

biker detour

The new detour route at Lakeshore Road, between Elliott Road and Nichols Road, opened for public traffic in mid-September. The detour diverts Lakeshore Road traffic over the recently constructed underpass while the Port Granby Project is underway.

The underpass was constructed to allow project trucks to avoid using public roadways while transporting historic low-level radioactive waste from the existing Port Granby Waste Management Facility to the new site, north of Lakeshore Road. Waste excavation and transport to the new site will begin this fall.

The Port Hope Area Initiative Management Office, the contractor for the Port Granby Project and an independent dust monitoring consultant are conducting ongoing dust monitoring while project activities are underway.
