Active Transportation Trail Construction Notice - MacQuarrie Drive Ext.

 
Residents are advised the Active Transportation Trail along MacQuarrie Drive Ext will begin construction the week of June 20th, 2022.
The AT trail will connect from the MacSween Street intersection along MacQuarrie Drive Ext to the Summit Drive intersection. The trail will be constructed along the nursing home, pump track and community park side of the street. The AT trail will be constructed similarly to the AT trail to NSCC and will have a 3m wide paved surface.
Traffic Control measures will be in place throughout construction and drivers and pedestrians are urged to use extra caution when travelling through the construction zones and to be aware of increased truck traffic, heavy equipment and on-site workers.
Whether you're a driver or pedestrian near a construction site, being aware of the dangers associated with construction zones can help keep you safe.
As a driver:
• Slow down in construction zones.
• Rely on construction signs, cones, barricades, and the direction of construction crews.
• Leave a safe following distance between cars while driving in a construction zone.
• Use your headlights for increased visibility.
• Do not use your cell phone or engage in any other distractions while driving in a construction zone.
As a pedestrian:
• Observe all signs associated with construction sites.
• Pay attention when walking or running near a construction zone.
• If you use headphones while walking or running near a construction site, leave one ear open so you can hear and be alert to your surroundings.
• Don't walk or run while sending texts, answering emails, or using your smartphone. Pay close attention to your surroundings!
• Observe walkways and crosswalks near construction sites.
• Walk or run in the direction of traffic in construction zones.
The Town of Port Hawkesbury would like to thank residents for their cooperation while this work is completed.
