Well CFL fans, tonight is an important night for the Hamilton Tiger Cats team. After a crazy week in Steel Town with the City Council back and forth and some of the councillors approving then voting against the west harbour deal, death threats against the Hamilton Mayor (which is delporable if you ask me) its time to get the onfield product ready to go against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, for the 4th time this season. I hope the team has been able to stay away from the media circus and concentrate on getting back on track and moving closer to the Eastern Division leaders. (Yes that means the Argos/All’s) I heard that Bob Young will end the media silence this past week and have an interview with Dave Randorf from TSN at half time of tonights game. We’ll all be watching and listening closely.
Back to Milton. I received a notice from the Town of Milton in their news section that 4th Line from Louis St Laurent to Britannia will be closed from September 2010 to December 2010 to allow for the Region of Halton to install a watermain feeder to Milton.
The temporary closure will be in effect from September 1, 2010 until December 31, 2010. Local and emergency access will be maintained throughout the construction.
Plans detailing the project are available for viewing at the Halton Region Office at 1075 North Service Road West, Unit 27, Oakville, ON or at The Town of Milton, Engineering Services, 2nd Floor, 150 Mary Street.
On August 23, 2010, Council will give consideration to the proposed bylaw. At this meeting, Council will hear, in person, or by their counsel, any person who applies to be heard. Persons wishing to be heard must notify the Clerk’s Department in writing, no later than 10 a.m. August 23, 2010.

I dont want to be a doom-sayer here but a set of traffic lights at Thompson and Louis St Laurent would come in handy during this period of time.
People coming down James Snow Parkway to Louis St. Laurent and normally turn down 4th line towards Britannia will now have to go all the way over to Thomspon, turn left and go down Thompson towards Britannia.
Can you say traffic mess? Of course you can. Seeing how there isnt a set of lights at Thompson and LSL (not enough traffic to warrant one) Thats ok though as traffic will flow nicely down Thompson Road towards Britannia right? Think again. Why? OH, I forgot there isnt a right hand turn lane to Britannia.
So…. from September to December look for Thompson Road to be a mess in the morning and afternoon. We can use that time sitting in traffic to think of other options to bring forward. Remember, you can have your say on August 23rd. I know some of us will.
Until then, I’ll see you at the doors.
