Haldimand County has announced a public information meeting for Tuesday June 12 to address traffic and pedestrian safety concerns at the Argyle Street/Haddington intersection in Caledonia.

The intersection, notorious to Caledonia residents, is a skewed configuration with a sharp curve on the westbound approach, wide angle northbound right-turn, multiple driveways in the immediate vicinity of the intersection and no pedestrian crossing facilities on Argyle Street.

The County has initiated a municipal class environmental assessment (Class EA) to identify and evaluate improvement alternatives, including: Do Nothing, Signalized Intersection Design, and Roundabout Design. The study will also address engineering issues such as accesses to adjoining properties, utilities and street lighting.

The Public Information Centre on June 12, from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Haldimand County Caledonia Centre, Remax room, 100 Haddington St, is an opportunity for residents to review study alternatives and provide input into the Class EA process.

Anyone wishing to provide input prior to the PIC are encouraged to contract one of the project team members:
