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 in the area of Craigleith and Highway 26.

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.

Why Now?

The Town is proactively investing solutions to meet projected increases in transportation demands, and address traffic congestion and safety concerns in the area.
