Long Point Causeway Improvement Project


Work continues toward safe passage for snakes, turtles and frogs at Long Point

Shell Canada is donating 10-thousand dollars toward the Long Point Causeway Improvement Project. It’s supporting plans to install three eco-passages on the Causeway.

They’re specially-designed culverts allowing turtles, snakes, frogs and small mammals to pass safely under the roadway–which is one of the worst for reptile road-deaths in North America.

Project officials are working with Norfolk County to complete an environmental assessment, ahead of construction later this year.
