Open house for Sherwood Drive roadway changes

Residents are invited to learn more about intersection and corridor improvements on Sherwood Drive from Village Drive to Ash Street.

The modifications will enhance traffic flow, accommodate growing traffic volume and improve traffic safety, while helping to meet long-term traffic demands for existing and proposed developments.

Improvements include:

  • Addition of a double left turn lane southbound on Sherwood Drive, turning onto Wye Road (east).
  • Lengthening of the northbound left turn lane from Sherwood Drive onto Fir Street (west).
  • Conversion of the all-directional access along Range Road 233 at Walmart/Ordze Avenue to right-in/right-out and north bound left-in.
  • Conversion of the all directional access along Sherwood Drive at Petro Canada/Shoppers Drug Mart to right-in/right-out only.
  • Relocation of traffic signals on Range Rd 233 at Walmart/Ordze Avenue access, south to Ash Street/Wye Road Gardens.

While access to Walmart and Sherwood Centre will change slightly, drivers will still be able to easily access those businesses, with the added benefit of safer intersections for both drivers and pedestrians.

The proposed timeline for construction is subject to budget and regulatory approvals. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2020.

The open house is an opportunity to learn more about the planned improvements:
