Rand Street Intersection - Capital Improvement Project
Due to several reported near-miss incidents the Municipality will be performing a realignment of the intersection of Rand Street, Bog Road and Holmes Hill Road located in the community of Hantsport. The realignment is scheduled to be completed before the end of June 2019.
This project will use a sequential implementation of the street realignment marked with painted lines and construction barrels to eliminate the 2-way traffic flow of the slipway lane. At a later date, the size of the concrete island will be increased to permanently reduce the physical size of the slipway lane.
The scope of work includes the following plan: 1. roadway to be painted with a new yellow centerline and white turning lanes and stop bar on Rand Street; 2. area of the reduced slipway lane will be reduced to allow 1-way traffic only, by painting hatched lines on the road surface and using construction barrels to close the southbound traffic flow straight to Holmes Hill Road; 3. new signage will be installed indicating the traffic signal changes along Rand Street; 4. a temporary asphalt sidewalk will be extended along the west side of Rand Street to Bog Road/Holmes Hill for pedestrian flow; and 5. our contractors will install larger size concrete island to permanently eliminate the 2-way slip lane traffic flow currently being utilized.
