Saugeen Shores' North Shore Road & Trail Survey Now Open

Saugeen Shores | by Claire McCormack  

Town is looking at making one lane of the road for exercise and one lane for driving.

Parts of the North Shore trail are closed  

The Town of Saugeen Shores has launched a public survey on a proposal for the North Shore road and trail.

The Town says temporary high water levels have damaged areas along the shoreline, resulting in closures on the trail.

Town staff say it will take time and money to fix it, and they're looking at temporary solutions to allow people to have access to the route for exercise and also for driving.

The proposal is to change one of North Shore Road's traffic lanes into a trail for pedestrians and cyclists. In this proposal, a temporary measure for summer 2020 only, traffic would use one lane of the road and only travel in one direction from McVicar Street to Concession 10.

Town staff say emergency response times to the properties in the area would be maintained.

The survey is open until noon on Friday, June 5th.

You can find it on the Town's website at: SaugeenShores.ca/NorthShoreTrailSurvey.

Surveys and a letter were also mailed to residents in the affected area. If anyone needs a hard copy of the survey, they are encouraged to call (519) 832-2008 x125 to make arrangements, as the Municipal Office is currently closed to the public.
