Public Works staff have completed the installation of the new crosswalk at Main and Centre. Council is pleased to be able to provide this improvement with the help of the Province through a Main Street Revitalization Grant. As part of a larger commitment to accessibility, revitalization and safety. This project features:
Light green day glow advisory signs for the crosswalk, 25 meters ahead of the crosswalk as a warning to drivers and cyclists.
Foot sense pads have been embedded in the sidewalk as a tell for those with visual or hearing issues to improve accessibility .
A push button on each side of the crosswalk that activates the two white crosswalk signs to light up, as this will alert oncoming traffic.
Council and staff have been working collaboratively with the OPP to implement various traffic calming measures and safety features in and around Town. Council has made safety one of their key priorities and will continue to work towards finding the right coverage for our Community.
