Proposed Designated Truck Route Consultation
Last week, the Chamber was pleased to host an information session for our members to learn more about the revised proposal for a municipal designated truck route. We are happy to see that the city has heard our concerns in relation to the original proposal which restricted truck traffic on all but 17 streets and will instead proceed with the current weight restrictions for streets within city limits. However, we continue to be concerned with the revised designated truck route which would direct ALL truck traffic onto Highway 11/17 as there are ongoing questions regarding the safety of this proposal and the impacts on business accessibility and operator costs. We welcome member feedback as we continue our work with the city to find solutions.
