Township Road 550 upgrades

Residents are invited to learn more about Township Road 550 intersection and road upgrades between Range Road 220 North to Highway 830.

The modifications will improve traffic flow and safety and support increased traffic volume while providing long-lasting improvements for a safe and sustainable traffic network.

Improvements include:

  • widening of Township Road 550 to provide one metre-wide shoulders
  • resurfacing Township Road 550 with thicker pavement
  • gentler side slopes along Township Road 550
  • improving ditch drainage
  • intersection improvements at Range Road 221 South
  • converting the Township Road 550 and Highway 830 intersection from a two-way stop to a four-way stop
