Rouge River Bridge rehabilitation will be starting soon
We are currently experiencing the fourth wave of COVID-19. Thank you to the entire Centennial Community for continuing to practise health guidelines and keeping each other safe. Below I have highlighted some local issues as well as provided more resources on everything you need to know about vaccine passports.
Rouge River Bridge Rehabilitation
Rehabilitation work on the Rouge River Bridge will be starting soon. The work will extend the life cycle of the 117-year-old heritage bridge by another 20 years.The rehabilitation of the bridge will not result in significant changes to the historic structure of the bridge. Rehabilitation work is happening to increase the bridge’s life span.
Metrolinx has worked hard to minimize impacts on Rouge Park visitors, and park access will remain open. Bridge rehabilitation activities may generate some sound during the daytime and when work is being completed overnight. Construction was scheduled to begin last month and will be ongoing until spring 2022.
Port Union Library Reopened
Great news ‒ the beloved neighbourhood library has reopened. I know the importance of this library to the community and it comes at a crucial time when kids are back at school.
As Ontario continues to fight the fourth wave of the pandemic driven by the Delta variant, our government is taking action to protect Ontarians and encourage every eligible person to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Starting September 22, Ontarians will be required to be fully vaccinated and provide proof of their vaccination status to access certain businesses and settings.
Requiring proof of vaccination will help increase vaccination rates, protect individuals in higher-risk indoor settings, and keep businesses open. Unvaccinated individuals are 24 times more likely to be hospitalized and 43 times more likely to be in ICU than fully vaccinated Ontarians. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect ourselves and our loved ones from COVID-19 and the Delta variant.
