KAWARTHA LAKES-The municipality of Kawartha Lakes, in partnership with the project’s consultant, Dillon Consulting, will be hosting an additional virtual public meeting for the Fenelon Falls Second Crossing project on May 29, 2021.
Officials say the purpose of this meeting is to inform seasonal and full time residents, within the areas of potential impact, of the study findings and recommendations. Areas of potential impact include the Town of Fenelon Falls, the community of Baddow along Concession Road 3 and along the Burnt River near Concession Road 3.
When: Saturday May 29, 2021 from 10am to 11:30am
Where: This will be a Virtual Zoom Meeting. A meeting link will be posted on the project website (www.kawarthalakes.ca/ffsecondcrossing) by Tuesday May 25, 2021. Please check there for the meeting link.
Public participation: Please log into the Zoom Meeting by 9:55am on Saturday the 29. During the meeting there will be opportunities to ask questions. If you have a question now, please send your question to the contact email below ([email protected]) in advance of the meeting so that the project team can prepare presentation materials that answer key questions from the community. The meeting will also be livestreamed on the municipality’s YouTube.
Roughly 15,000 vehicles per day travel through Fenelon Falls in the summer months and often, long vehicle delays occur during peak traffic hours along the bridge and at the intersection of Helen Street and Lindsay Street.
The options being considered to address traffic through Fenelon Falls include: in-town intersection design improvements, a second bridge crossing located in-town to the east of the existing bridge, a new by-pass around Fenelon Falls that would require a new bridge over the Burnt River at Concession Road 3, or the expansion of the existing Colborne Street bridge crossing in-town.
