    there have been frequent springs when flooding occurs with runoff from the Sheridan property behind the bruce trail across from the Beaumont Mill. At one time the tailrace of the mill might have carried this away but no longer. this flooding is accompanied by flowing sand. THH installed a culvert under Main St at the mill but it fills with sand quickly and plugs. a serious underground storm sewer from north of the mill to the north/west corner of bridge 2 might be a consideration. It will be tough to make the road good through here without resolving this issue at the same time.

    Thank you for submitting the history at this location. The Main Street Improvements project includes completion of a stormwater management study within the study area and recommendations for future drainage improvements. The history at this location will be provided to the project team for consideration during the stormwater assessment.

    Will the proposed Main St improvements extend to 10th line? Will the improvements allow for a wider paved shoulder to accommodate cyclists and pedestrians?

    Art Balogh asked 4 days ago

    The Main Street Improvements project study area extends only to the Urban Limit approximately 415m southwest of Tenth Line. An evaluation of different road cross-section alternatives for each section of Main Street within the study area will be completed as part of the project.

    Will consideration be given to traffic-calming measures along Main Street in Glen Williams?

    Judy Labelle asked 9 days ago

    With respect to traffic calming, over the last number of years various non-intrusive traffic calming measures have been implemented in Glen Williams. These have included signage, pavement marking, flashing beacons, raised crosswalks and gateway features. There is also an existing speed hump on Prince Street and flexible bollards have been installed on Confederation Street. In addition, staff have deployed Radar Messaging Boards along with a police silhouette on various roads within Glen Williams numerous times over the years.

    Notwithstanding the traffic calming measures that have previously been implemented, Staff plan to install four (4) temporary speed humps on Confederation Street between Wildwood Road and Bishop Court. Staff will conduct post speed studies on Confederation in the spring once the temporary speed humps are installed.

    Staff have also recommended that the 2022 Traffic Calming Project will be the Confederation Street Neighbourhood. The Confederation Street Neighbourhood Traffic Calming Project will include other streets in the area such as Mountain Street, Glen Crescent, and Main Street. Prince Street is being addressed through its own project that will include public consultation. Staff will also include Wildwood Road from Main Street to Eighth Line and Eighth Line from Wildwood Road to approximately 600m north. 

    It is anticipated that Staff will provide recommendations to Council on proposed traffic calming measures for the Confederation Street Neighbourhood Traffic Calming Project in Q3 of 2022 and will commence with the implementation in Q2 of 2023.

    Is this being dug up to accommodate the 'proposed' new subdivisions? When will we get an answer about the speeding cars/requested lower speed limit/requested speed bumps that we have asked repeatedly for? Would like to use our taxpayer money for something that will benefit the current residents of our Hamlet.

    Reconstruction of Main Street, rehabilitation of Bridge 1 and Bridge 2, and other elements of the Main Street Improvements project within Glen Williams is part of the Town's capital works program and is not in response to proposed development.

    Based upon rapid business growth and tourism to the area, is there any consideration given to the installation of a public washroom facility? Based upon existing business footprints just north of the study area, why not expand the study area now st this early stage, and include meeting the growing walking demand for sidewalks in this area. Encouraging walking through the business section by tourists reduced carbon footprint and helps control the parking movement of vehicles within this FULL business footprint.

    pauline asked 10 days ago

    Expansion of the project's study area is not anticipated at this time. An assessment of sidewalk facilities within the study area is included in the project scope and will be completed during this assignment. However, consideration for public washroom facilities is beyond the scope of this assignment.

    To what extent, if any, are sidewalks being considered within the proposed improvement area?

    apexcruncher asked 11 days ago

    Assessment and consideration of sidewalk facilities within the study area is included in the scope of this assignment. However, the project is currently in the preliminary design phase and this assessment is yet to be completed. 

    Maps / drawings and additional information pertaining to the design will be available at a future Public Information Centre, anticipated Q2 or Q3 2022.
