Service Disruption

Kelso - Summit Gate

Starting July 17, the area of Steeles Ave that provides access to Kelso Summit Gate will be under construction. During this time, access to the Summit parking lot will be limited and may be closed. During this time, we recommend using the Main Gate at 5234 Kelso Road. Work is scheduled to be complete the week of August 5.

Kelso - Dam

The Kelso Dam, located within Kelso Conservation Area in Milton, is receiving some needed repairs and infrastructure improvements. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2019. More information may be found here.

During construction, every effort will be made to mitigate any environmental impacts and reduce the disruption to our neighbours and visitors. However, some noticeable disruptions may occur:

  • The footbridge over Sixteen Mile Creek at Kelso Conservation Area will be closed for the duration of construction.
  • The roadway access over the dam from the Boat Launch and Rentals to the Camping area to the east side will be open but may experience periodic closures during construction activities.
  • Visitors using the Kelso Lake Reservoir for boating or swimming will continue to have lower water levels.
  • Occasional closures to the Boat Rentals parking lot and other service disruptions will occur.
