The Town has been notified by the Ministry of Transportation that a recent traffic study at the intersection of Highway 7 and Townline Road has concluded that the intersection now meets the warrant to justify the installation of traffic control signals.
The Ministry is currently completing a detail design and environmental assessment study for this section of Highway 7 under GWP 4293-15-00, and the traffic signal design has been added to this project. Timing of construction of the project will be determined at a future date, based on completion of the design, environmental assessment, purchase of any necessary property, relocation of utilities, and availability of funding.
“Council and I have heard concerns from residents about this intersection many times. I was thrilled to hear the Province validate those concerns and take steps to ensure the safety of our growing community,” says Toby Randell, Mayor of Carleton Place. “And a special thank you to John Jordan, our MPP who continues to lobby on behalf of our citizens.”
