Highway feedback deadline extended

Stratford Gazette

Local residents now have a little more time to submit comments concerning the Ministry of Transportation’s latest design proposals for Highway 7/8.

In a letter to the Agriculture Business Community of Perth East, Perth South, Wilmot West (ABC), Brenda Jamieson, project manager from AECOM, announced the submission date will be extended from Sept. 28 to Oct. 31.

ABC had submitted an Aug.13 letter to request the extension to allow more time to conduct research and consult its membership. ABC has also requested further information about each of the ministry’s design alternatives, including the total amount of agricultural land that would be taken, the number of homes and buildings that would be taken, total affected acreage and details surrounding potential road closures and traffic flow.

Information on the Highway 7/8 corridor study can be found at www.7and8corridorstudy.ca.
