Multiple Saugeen Shores road projects planned

Saugeen Shores residents will see a number of road construction projects get underway in the near future.

And residents will get a chance to find out more from the engineering department at two upcoming public meetings.  Discussion items will include construction timing, access to properties, garbage collection, parking, work hours, and design elements for each street.

Projects in Port Elgin this year will include Harbour Street from Green to Izzard, Bruce Road 25 from Saugeen Beach Road to Lake Range, and Elgin Street from Harbour to Spring.

Seven road projects are planned for Southampton this year.  That will affect Emerald St from Albert St. to bend, Albert St. from Emerald St. to Palmerston St., Grosvener St. from Island St. to Chantry View Dr.,  Palmerston St. from Albert St. to Victoria St., Victoria St. from Palmerston St. to the water tower, McNabb St. from Railway St. to Peel St. and Beach St. from Lake St. to Huron St.

A public meeting is planned in Port Elgin on April 30 at the Rotary Hall. Southampton residents can go to the Southampton Town Hall May 14. Both meetings run from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
