Trans-Northern Pipelines Inc. - Preventative Maintenance Work
Trans-Northern Pipelines Inc. has scheduled preventive maintenance work at the Centennial Bikeway and Sheldon Creek crossing. This preventative maintenance work is scheduled to begin Oct. 25, 2021, and will last approximately four weeks – weather permitting. TNPI will be working in and around Sheldon Creek to safely add cover to the pipeline, protecting both the pipeline and the creek.
This work will require equipment to be brought to the work site via Fothergill Boulevard westbound lanes, as well as the access path. TNPI is working closely with the City of Burlington to ensure road safety, all permitting is in place, and that traffic disruptions are kept to a minimum. The work area will be fully fenced for safety, and pedestrian traffic along the access path will be safely re-routed with signage on site.

Brant Hills Park is a community park located between Duncaster Drive and Brant Street just north of Upper Middle Road. The park supports a range of recreational facilities, including a community centre, sports fields, tennis courts, a skateboarding area and play structure. As part of the 2019 capital budget process, City Council approved a new splash pad for this park. Construction has started and the new splash pad will be opening spring 2021.
The new splash pad will be located beside the existing playground with access from Duncaster Drive.
Earlier this year, the City of Burlington hosted an on-line vote to pick the preferred splash pad design. Below is a rendering of the winning option.
*due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the production and service delays in the construction industry, this completion date may be affected.Contact

The City of Burlington has completed the West Aldershot Erosion Control Class Environmental Assessment (EA) study to address erosion concerns and produce detail design for erosion control works within the study area. This study was completed as a 'Schedule B' project in compliance with the Municipal Engineers Association Class EA process.
Associated Engineering was retained to complete this Environmental Assessment for the city. This study identified the needs and opportunities for the implementation of erosion control mitigation measures for West Aldershot Creek between Fairwood Place and Lake Ontario. The Class EA Study developed and evaluated a variety of remedial measures to address erosion issues, infrastructure protection and enhancement of aquatic and riparian habitats.

The City of Burlington is undertook a Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) on Tuck Creek to assess flooding and identify crossing and channel upgrades between New Street and Spruce Avenue.
The study was undertaken as a result of the extreme weather event of Aug. 4, 2014, during which crossings at New Street, Regal Road, and Spruce Avenue were overtopped by flood waters. The city previously undertook a Class EA for erosion control on Tuck Creek within the same study area.
The flood study was conducted as a 'Schedule B' project in compliance with the Municipal Engineers Association document Municipal Class Environmental Assessment and is addressing Phases 1 and 2 of the Class EA Process.
The Class Environmental Assessment established recommendations, leading to Municipally-led capital works to address flooding and erosion risks. A set of alternative solutions were evaluated and presented to the public and agencies for comment at various points throughout the study. The study...

The City of Burlington has hired Aquafor Beech Limited to do a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to study the risk of erosion related to three reaches of Tuck Creek. The study will look at erosion, protect infrastructure and private properties, and enhance the natural heritage along Tuck Creek.
The existing bank is not able to protect the local area from storm overflow and there are many areas of the banks that have eroded. Local residential properties could be impacted as identified in the City – Wide Creek Erosion Inventory and Erosion Assessment (2016). We will investigate solutions such as channel restoration and stabilization of Tuck Creek, natural channel design and native restoration practices.
The Tuck Creek Erosion Control Municipal Class Environmental Assessment will be done as a Schedule B Project in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. The Class EA...
