​BRAMPTON, ON (February 23, 2022) – Today, the City of Brampton’s Fire and Emergency Services Incident Commander, Fire Chief Bill Boyes concluded that the emergency portion of the Churchville area flood response and operations has transitioned to an ongoing recovery effort.

Today all Churchville area residents have been able to return to their homes.

The City’s Public Works & Engineering Team and Brampton’s Emergency Management Office will continue ongoing recovery operations including ice removal, clean-up efforts, and providing support to local residents with coordinating essential utility services.

The Churchville Bridge remains closed to vehicular traffic and Creditview Road is open to local traffic only. Churchville Park South remains closed at this time, and the City’s Park’s staff will be working closely with Credit Valley Conservation on a restoration plan for the area. Any necessary repair work to damaged roadways and shoulders will take place in the summer months.
