Mussel relocation at Argyle Bridge

Mussel relocation at Argyle Bridge
CALEDONIA—On July 20, 2020, the Ministry of Transportation and its Contractor, Dufferin Construction, began mussel relocation work in the Grand River at the Argyle Street Bridge. This project is anticipated to be completed in October 2020. The work includes searching for and relocating mussels in the vicinity of the bridge. During the work there will be no anticipated impacts to traffic or pedestrians. The Ministry and Dufferin are working closely with the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, as well as Fisheries and Oceans Canada to ensure the work is carried out in the best interest of the species. “There will be 12-20 people in the water for approximately the next six to eight weeks following commencement,” said Councillor Dan Lawrence in a post on Facebook. “Once this is complete, the move into the river by the contractor for the new bridge construction can occur.” —Haldimand Press photo by Jillian Zynomirski.
