4th Canadian Division Training Centre (Meaford) North Shore Road Erosion Control

A section of Georgian Bay shoreline, measuring approximately 50 metres long, located parallel to the North Shore Road at 4th Canadian Division Training Centre (4 CDTC) is eroding due to abnormally high water levels, combined with wave action. The erosion has been advancing inland and has begun to affect the safe passage along this section of gravel roadway. In order to prevent further damage and, to repair damage already incurred, 4 CDTC is proposing to stabilize this area of shoreline using rip rap, native beach stone and geotextile membrane. A guide rail fence will also be installed along the affected section of roadway. Furthermore, this section of existing road will be reshaped (crowned) after the shoreline stabilization work has been completed. Mitigation measures including, but not exclusive to, those received from Fisheries and Oceans Canada will be implemented throughout the course of the project and until the site has fully stabilized.
