Yesterday, there was an open house in Thornhill regarding the Transportation Ministry’s plans to turn the four-way stop at the Highway 16-37 intersection into a roundabout.
Plenty of questions were asked in this open house, with mixed opinions.
Some residents were saying the roundabout would create too much confusion for drivers while some were saying this will speed up commutes for residents.
District Highways Manager Darrell Gunn says studies have shown a roundabout is the preferred option.
Gunn added there will be programs available to help residents understand the new roundabout.
The ministry hopes to finish consultations and some work over the winter and begin full construction in 2019.
