Roundabout Ceremony Held
EMC news -Community members and city staff were out in full force to commemmorate the Bridlewood roundabout on May 27.
Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley was joined by Mayor Jim Watson, Mary Jarvis of Urbandale, Gillian Sullivan of the Bridlewood Community Association, and Deborah Mohr-Caldwell from Goldie Mohr Ltd. to unveil a plaque recognizing everyone who helped with the construction of the roundabout on Stonehaven Drive.
“This traffic solution was implemented to make travel along Stonehaven more efficient and safer,” said Hubley in a press release.
MAKE YARD WORK
Urbandale fronted the $1 million for the construction of the new intersection in 2012 and the city is paying back the amount, interest free.
“By replacing a four-way-stop intersection, the roundabout was a better approach to keeping traffic moving, and to handle the vehicle volume coming from four different directions,” said Hubley. “We have received great feedback from the community on the roundabout.”
Watson said it was about time Bridlewood had an answer to its traffic woes.
“The traffic problems at this intersection had gone unresolved for years, but by combining projects and the help of a front ending agreement, we have implemented a solution that is both safe and efficient,” said Watson in a press release.
