Renovation beginning at Port Elgin Harbour

Federal funding allows for major project

 

Saugeen Shores, ON; The Port Elgin Harbour is about to become safer and more efficient for its users thanks to an investment by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. This major renovation project coordinated by the Government of Canada in partnership with the Town of Saugeen Shores will commence on October 17th.

The federal project, which includes stabilizing and encapsulating the harbour wall from the southern pier to the end of the fueling area, is expected to last until the end of March 2017. During this time, the Town will also be relocating fuel pumps and pump out facilities, and adding additional docks to the fueling area.

“This project is an important step in the life of our harbour,” says Greg Lancaster, Facilities Manager for the Town of Saugeen Shores. “It will ensure the integrity of the structure, while also providing a safe and reliable harbour for the future of boating in Saugeen Shores.”

An area of the promenade will be closed during this renovation to ensure the safety of the public and workers. There will be no access to the area or the benches identified on the attached map. Visit the Town of Saugeen Shores, Community Services department on Facebook or Twitter (@ParksRecSS) for updates on the project as it continues through the winter.
