Work on the Stonehaven widening project is almost complete. The landscaping, final paving and pavement markings were completed this week and residents can expect the additional turn lane on Eagleson to be functioning next week with the updated lights. The roundabout was completed at the end of the summer and will compliment the widening project. I have heard a lot of great feedback, but I would like to remind residents to use their turn signal to indicate their exit from the roundabout. I want to thank Urbandale for front ending the cost of the roundabout so that residents did not have to endure construction for several years.
HAZELDEAN WATERMAIN UPDATE
Starting on the evening of Thursday November 8, 2012 west bound traffic on Hazeldean Road between Edgewater Street and Kincardine Drive will be shifted over to the east bound side of the road and reduced to one lane in each direction. Also, in order to accommodate the lane reductions on Hazeldean Road, the twin left-turn lanes on Terry Fox Drive at the Hazeldean Road intersection will be reduced to single left-turn lanes. These temporary traffic control measures will be in place until mid-December 2012. For more information on this project, please visit the Infrastructure section of my website.

AROUND THE WARD
I had the pleasure of joining MP Gordon O’Connor at his Saturday Morning Breakfast Series last weekend. This event, which was held at Don Cherry’s, was a tribute to our Canadian Forces of the past, present and future. It was an honour to listen to the guest speaker, General (Ret’d) Paul D. Manson, former Chief of the Defence Staff. I would like to thank all the men and women of the Canadian Forces for the sacrifice they have made for our Country and our freedom.
