Major repairs to breakwall in Fort Erie set to begin

Icewall

Major repairs to the breakwall in Fort Erie are set to begin mid-October.  

Rankin Construction will be repairing about 180 meters of the breakwall damaged from an ice wall created last year when the ice boom broke during a wind storm in February. 

That windstorm led to an incredible ice wall that drew many visitors to the area and generated international media attention.  

While visually stunning, the ice wall caused considerable damage to the breakwall on both sides of the Niagara River. 

There will be no road closures required for this project as all construction will take place off the road and pathways. 

Traffic controls will be in place to allow vehicles to access the work site. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of November.
