Official Opening of Lake Road Extension

Clarington December 10, 2014/- The Municipality of Clarington is pleased to invite the community as we celebrate the opening of the Lake Road Extension. The project is part of Council's long-term vision for Clarington to facilitate growth, open up lands for infrastructure and create more jobs. The official opening will be held at the site, just east of the 405 Lake Road in Bowmanville, on December 15th at 2 p.m.

The Lake Road extension is an example of strategic investment; it opens up industrial lands for use in a key area by putting in infrastructure. It also adds a safety component by providing an alternative emergency access to the waterfront. The extension will also ease transportation and commuting within the area by linking Lake Road to South Service Road. It offers commuters with an alternate access to Highway 401 at Bennett Road. "This project has two main benefits: it opens up industrial land for use in a highly sought after area with exposure to the 401. And it provides a much needed secondary access to the waterfront adding a safety component for residents in the area," said Tony Canella Director of Engineering.

The construction phase of the project took about four months. The overall project cost is around $2 million. The Municipality of Clarington paid $670,000 of the landowner's share of the project on condition that the investment be returned over time. The Lake Road extension has opened up over 13 hectares of viable lands for growth and development. The Municipality has worked closely with the Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority to obtain the necessary approvals to extend the road, and to protect and preserve the environment along Bennett Creek.
