The Morriston Highway 6 Streetscape Strategy was created to help mitigate traffic concerns and improve the pedestrian environment. This plan builds upon recent initiatives in Morriston, which include larger speed signs, zebra striping of the main intersection off Highway 6 and Badenoch Street and the community safety zone.
The Township has allocated funding in its 2013 and 2014 Capital Budget for this project. The remaining funds are proposed to be budgeted in 2015 and 2016.
An application has been made to the Ministry of Transportation to approve and implement the plan.
