Construction of the crosswalk improvement is projected to start May 22, 2023. Items of work include the installation of rapid rectangular flashing beacons, ADA curb ramps, curb bulb-out, pedestrian refuge island, slurry seal, vertical bollards to create separated bike lanes, and refresh striping.
The first phase of construction will begin at the southwest corner of Natalie Drive and Brooks Road South, which will necessitate a southbound lane closure on Brooks Road South between Foothill Drive and Pulteney Place. Construction updates will be posted on the Town website at: https://www.townofwindsor.com/1428/Brooks-Road-South-at-Natalie-Drive-Cross.
This project is anticipated to increase driver awareness to the presence of pedestrians, enhance the visibility of pedestrians crossing the street, reduce pedestrian crossing distance, reduce the number of conflict points, and establish a clearer path of travel for vehicles and bicycles.
