The project is being permanently installed. Road work is underway and is anticipated to be completed this fall. Landscaping work will be completed next spring.

Council decided on the pilot during the April 17, 2019 meeting of Committee of the Whole (see attached).

Church Hill, in the vicinity of Veteran's Square, will be narrowed and formal parking areas will be added to both streets.

    Two questions: 1) how will the new parking lot and Queen's Road be separated, and 2) what will be placed in the small triangular sliver created along Church Hill? I would hope that the answer to the first is not going to be a long peninsula of sidewalk, which would be unsafe and would likely be cleared away with the snow by the end of the first winter. The sliver would be an excellent place to put a bicycle parking station to service the downtown. I would also echo sentiments towards other traffic projects in saying that this reconfiguration would be an excellent chance to implement some bike lanes along Queen's Road.

    1) For the pilot project, pylons will be used to delineate the space.

    2) For the pilot project, there will not be anything placed in this sliver.

    If this project is successful and approved for the long term then a more appropriate permanent design will be developed.

    Will the right turn east (up) Queen's Road come up as far and be as sharp as it is currently? It is very difficult to see oncoming traffic for those making the left turn west (down) Queen's Road.

    The new configuration is much closer to a normal "T" intersection. This means that the right turn on to Queen's Road will be at a more perpendicular angle than before.
