Speed complaints occupy counties staff
bound lane jinks around the turnoff lane and has a traffic sign warning through traf- fic to keep to the right. The intersection has had an overhead amber flashing light for several years now to warn motorists from both directions to watch for traffic turning off the main road. The new line painting setup is an attempt by the counties and municipality to deal with traffic concerns at that intersection that relate to speed. A request for a reduced speed limit and a new traffic light setup on a section of County Road 17 was rejected by the coun- ties public works committee. The request concerns the intersection of County Road
17 and Laurier Street in Rockland. A resident has asked the county to lower the speed limit along the county road near that intersection from the current 80 kilo- metres to 60 and to also install a regulated traffic light there. The intersection has been the site for several accidents over the years. A counties public work department re- port noted that a traffic count was done at that intersection last summer and the num- bers do not warrant either a speed limit re- duction or a traffic light based on current provincial highway standards. There is a re- duction of the speed limit to 60 kilometres an hour further along the county road near the off-road entry to the Canadian Interna-
tional Hockey Academy (CIHA). That was an extension of the existing 60-kilometre limit for traffic through town that began at the Edwards Street intersec- tion with County Road 17. It was made as part of the hockey academy development project to deal with traffic concerns for resi- dents and visitors attending hockey games and other events at the new Rockland Are- na located on the CIHA grounds. The City of Clarence-Rockland is doing a study of the Laurier Street intersection with County Road 17 to determine if a re-align- ment of the intersection to a 90-degree an- gle from the county road might be a better solution.

L’ORIGNAL| Complaints are starting to pile up about how some drivers treat some of the county roads in Prescott-Russell like they were over-the-limit speedways. A St-Albert resident has asked the Unit- ed Counties of Prescott-Russell council to extend the 50-kilometre-an-hour speed limit on the eastern boundaries of the vil- lage. The counties council’s public works committee supports the request. The pub- lic works department will prepare a bylaw for the speed zone extension for counties council to approve at a future meeting. Another request for reducing the speed limit is on hold for now. A resident in Alfred- Plantagenet Township has asked for a re- duction of the speed limit on County Road 24 near the village of Alfred. The present speed limit is 80 kilometres an hour for the county road. The request is to have it lowered to 60 kilometres from the intersection of the county road with Blue Corner Road heading west. Blue Corner Road is a municipal road be- longing to the township and any speed lim- it reductions for county roads that involve municipal roads have to go through review by the local council first. Alfred-Plantagenet Mayor Jean-Yves Lalonde has asked for a delay on the counties decision while his own public works department evaluates the reduction request. Speeding is also behind a complaint about the current setup for the intersection of County Road 17 and County Road 19 in the village of Wendover in Alfred-Planta- genet Township. The counties public works department has received an email complaint from a resident across the Ottawa River in Thurso, QC, about the changes made to the traffic guide lines at the intersection. The new line-painting scheme creates a short divided eastbound lane setup at the intersection with a marked left-turnoff strip for drivers who want to get off County Road 17 and go into Wendover.
