The District of Lake country says that the project will help increase safety and traffic flow because there will be better and safer routes for cyclists, a new pedestrian sidewalk will be created and there will be an upgrade of road drainage systems to improve storm water drainage to prevent ponding and isolated flooding.

There will also be an emergency egress from the Lakes subdivision onto the highway to provide an alternate means of evacuation in the event of a major incident.

The district will hold a public information meeting, April 3 from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. in the lobby of George Elliot Secondary School.
