Full Text

Much to the relief of area drivers who have had to endure long wait times while turning left onto Steeles Ave. from Ninth Line S., traffic lights will soon be installed at that intersection. Construction work is expected to begin within the next couple of weeks at the intersection and the lights are to be functional there by April. Cost for the lights is approximately $175,000. Nick Zervos, acting manager of transportation for Halton Region, said the intersection met the warrant for traffic lights in 2005 based on overall volume and the delay drivers experience while turning onto Steeles Ave. from Ninth Line. Design work for the lights was done last year. Zervos said there had been occasional complaints about the intersection in the past, but recently numerous complaints have been received by the Region. Zervos added that section of Steeles Ave. is slated to be widened to four lanes in 2009.
