Downtown Traffic Study - Your opinion is valued

Thursday, July 19, 2018

The City of Sault Ste. Marie is conducting a traffic study of downtown streets to identify potential improvements that would benefit downtown business and livability; introduce new pedestrian, cycling and driver safety features; and improve overall accessibility through the downtown and the waterfront, as recommended in the City's recent Transportation Master Plan. This study largely focuses on functional changes including two-way conversion of downtown one-way streets, namely Bay, Queen, Albert and Wellington, Andrew, Gore, Pim and Church Streets.

A second Public Information Centre will be held to present the evaluation of alternatives considered for downtown traffic changes, and the preliminary preferred change that is now being considered. Members of the public are invited to review and provide feedback on the proposed considerations. City staff and the consultant will also be available to discuss the study.

Date: Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Time: 3 p.m. - 7 p.m.

Place: Russ Ramsay Room, Level 3 - Civic Centre
