The Town, in partnership with the Ministry of Transportation and County of Grey ("road authorities"), has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to consider potential transportation issues and solutions relating to the development in the area of Highway 26 between Grey Road 19 and Grey Road 21. Alternative solutions will be developed to consider improvements to the transportation network that meet projected increases in transportation demands (pedestrian, cyclist, vehicle) and address traffic congestion and safety concerns in the area.
Included in this study are possible improvements, enhancements or closures of existing intersections at Highway 26 and Grey Road 21/Long Point Road, Lakeshore Road East/Fraser Crescent, Brophy's Lane, Hope Street, Blue Mountain Drive and Timmons Street. Redirection of existing local streets to facilitate consolidation of intersections will be considered. Other considerations include connections to proposed developments, the alignment of the Georgian Trail and pedestrian traffic crossing Highway 26.
A PIC has been scheduled for Thursday, June 7, 2018 at 6:00pm and Saturday, June 9, 2018 at 10:00am.
The PICs will be held at Town Hall in the Council Chambers. Detailed information can be found here: Notice of Public Information Centre.
