Good news! Work is now scheduled to begin at the intersection of Hwy 25 and Louis St. Laurent to allow for a widened intersection and installation of a traffic signal as well. Work is expected to commence soon and be completed by June 2011.
This means that the extension of LSL towards 25 is almost ready to be used. This will help in alleviating traffic along Britannia Road east / west ( a route I take daily). What I will be looking for and asking for a timeline is the installation of a traffic signal at Thompson Road and LSL. With the new east / west route up and running, this means there will be more traffic going through this already busy intersection in the morning.
Here’s a map of the work area.
