Traffic island for Mud-Pritchard intersection

News Apr 15, 2015 by Gord Bowes Hamilton Mountain News

The intersection of Mud and Pritchard will look a lot different this summer.

A traffic island is being installed that will allow eastbound traffic on Mud Street to turn south on Pritchard without stopping.

Drivers who want to continue heading east toward the Red Hill Valley Trail parking lot will have to stop before entering the intersection.

The move is being made out of safety concerns, said east Mountain councillor Tom Jackson.

In 2013, a stop sign was added for drivers heading west on Mud due to safety concerns as many drivers turned from Pritchard neglected to look for traffic coming from their right.

As part of reconstruction, Union Gas will be relocating its infrastructure in the intersection.

The public works department says the intersection may be blocked to through traffic at various times during the work.

Construction is to be completed by the end of July.
