Peer review of traffic study expected

·1 min read

One county Public Works file that’s garnered Roberts’ interest was a traffic study and a speed limit review for Peninsula Road.

“I certainly know you’re being bombarded with files from the Dysart area,” said Roberts.

Robert Sutton, the county’s director of public works, said a preliminary review has been done of a traffic impact study. He said staff investigated whether or not there’s a need for a right turn taper on County Road 21.

After discussions with Dysart municipal staff, Stone said the county figured they could address anything to come out of the peer review as a condition of site plan control.

“We felt the consultant had addressed most of the concerns county staff had,” Stone said.

The peer review consultant results will be available to the county in about a month.
