Traffic Circle Update
– by Maja Tait, Mayor
[sam id=”15″ codes=”true”]Attached is a photo of the Town Centre infrastructure improvements occurring this summer. From Church to Otter Point, such will include improved transit facilities, side walks, marked bicycle lanes, boulevards, lighting and cross walks. The project will also allow for the construction of new turn lanes and medians, improved drainage and re-positioning of some utilities as well as improvements to both major intersections to improve the flow of traffic. When completed, the project will improve the overall safety and operating efficiency for all travellers.
Hwy 14 will remain open, however reduced speeds and periodic single lane traffic is expected. Access to every business will be maintained throughout construction.
I will continue to post information … as it comes available.
