Hamilton staff completes pedestrian crossover on Pritchard Road at trail crossing
Hamilton staff have completed installation of a pedestrian crossover on Pritchard Road between Stone Church Road and Mountain Brow at the trail crossing.
Mike Fields, acting director of transportation, operations and maintenance, stated the crossover is activated as of June 11 and is expected to “enhance the safe crossing” of the many people who use the surrounding trails.
Mountain Coun. Tom Jackson said the pedestrian crossover will provide some security to pedestrians and cyclists who are enjoying the trail and motorists who use Pritchard Road to help them be on the lookout for pedestrians and cyclists crossing the roads.
“Many motorists, especially, have asked me and the traffic department for greater awareness at this crossing point as they travel north and south on Pritchard,” said Jackson, who advocated for the crossing.
