The City of Sault Ste. Marie has initiated a traffic study to investigate alternatives to address traffic congestion in the area around Second Line and Great Northern Road intersection. A public information session is scheduled for November 30 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Russ Ramsay Board Room at the Civic Centre to hear comments and suggestions from residents. All are welcome to attend this session as City staff and Consultants will be available to discuss the project.
“A traffic operations review determined that the current traffic conditions including heavy congestion and delays in the vicinity of Second Line and Great Northern Road will continue to worsen in the future as more development occurs in the City,” says Carl Rumiel, Design and Construction Engineer with the City of Sault Ste. Marie. “It’s important for us to present potential solutions and offer an opportunity for the public to provide input and suggestions.”
The study is being undertaken to review potential solutions to improve the traffic operations of the Second Line and Great Northern Road intersection as well as improve the skewed intersection of Second Line and Old Garden River Road. Preceding any decisions recommending or accepting a preferred solution, the community will have the opportunity to review the study findings and provide feedback and comments.
If you would like to be included on the project mailing list, have any questions or wish to obtain more information on the project please contact Carl Rumiel at 705.759.5379 or email [email protected].
