Notice of Road Closure and Stairs/Walkways in the Beach Area due to Goderich Shore Protection and Remediation Project – Commencing December 1, 2019

Goderich Town Council has approved a contract with Huron District Contracting to proceed immediately with shoreline protection at the beach area.

The main focus of construction will be in the area of the Goderich Water Treatment Plant, however due to work that will commence on December 1, 2019, the Town will be closing the beach area to vehicular and pedestrian traffic starting at the Main Beach southward (authorized vehicles only, i.e., construction vehicles and Veolia).

Also be advised that the stairs on various walkways from the beach to the bluffs will be restricted from pedestrians during this time.  

These closures will remain in effect during construction. It is not known when these areas will re-open to the public. 

We appreciate the public’s cooperation during this important and necessary shore protection and remediation construction project at our beach.
