Station Road to Jones Road


The formerly named Station Road which leads to the CNR tracks north of Morrisburg has gotten a new name, Jones Road.

At the January 17th South Dundas council meeting, Hugh Garlough, Manager of Public Works, recommended that council change the name based on a recent review of township road maps and by-laws.

Garlough explained, “we found out this road was named Station Road by the Village of Morrisburg in 1960. This conflicts with Station Road in Iroquois as well as Marine Station Road in Matilda.”

Jones Road is named after Eddie Jones who, according to Garlough, worked for the CNR before and after  the Seaway Project.
