Ewing Street Rock Cut Project Nears Completion

November 7, 2020 | 1 Comment

The City of Hamilton said they have “transformed a potentially hazardous area on Ewing Street that will serve to beautify the area, create more usable space and also increase the safety of the rock face there through stabilization.”

A spokesperson said, ” The rock slope had degraded over time and presented a risk to nearby buildings and property. The rock face has now been terraced back as well as fenced in to dissuade any illegal dumping.

“During excavation it was discovered that this section of Hamilton was an original quarry, likely a source of rock for buildings near Hamilton.

“The east-west cuts on either end were fill areas where existing quarry cuts were filled in and then built upon. In these areas, non-valuable artifacts were discovered intermixed in the fill material which presented interesting finds during construction.

“To complete the project a ‘geo-web’ wall will be installed on the eastern edge which is a high-density poly-web material into which soil is placed and is subsequently planted with local vegetation. This geo-web wall will reduce soil erosion and create a ‘green wall’ to break up the hard rock face.

“The completed project will meet the objectives of reducing soil erosion risk in the area, beautification, safety and the discouraging of dumping and antisocial behavior – all beneficial results for the nearby properties with optionality for new use of the green space in the future.”

  1. Really? says:

    And when is the completion date or have they run out of money because of covid. Residents have waited a long time to get this official story and soil erosion on their property and caves still exist so there is still work to be done. Residents are pleased something was done and await its completion. A nice update and nice work but it needs to be completed and the corporation are aware of this.Residents have been patient but this can’t go on forever without work.
