Concerns MTO project will impact tourist traffic

From the Niagara Falls Review:

City and tourism officials remain hopeful the Ministry of Transportation will do everything possible to mitigate the impact a proposed road and bridge project along Highway 420 will have on visitors this spring.

“We don’t want to give people from the GTA any reason to avoid Niagara Falls, and long delays in or out will be reason to avoid us,” said Mayor Jim Diodati. “Let’s deal with this properly. Let’s plan it out in such a way that doesn’t add a pile more to the cost, but at the same time doesn’t have a major cost to the tourism industry.”

Ministry spokesperson Astrid Poei said the project includes resurfacing approximately 3.2 kilometres on Highway 420 from Stanley Avenue to Montrose Road, and rehabilitating five structures at the 420/QEW interchange.
