'Yes, she will benefit from it being paved, so will I'to the editor,
I don't know where Mr. de Wolde lives, but I would venture a
guess it's nowhere near Hwy 89 and the 20th Sideroad and he has likely
rarely, if ever, had to use this stretch of road.
While I wouldn't contend that it's an EDR for 400 directly, it does get quite busy in the summer with cottage traffic when 27 gets backed up or any time there is an accident or slow down on 27. There is a domino effect when 400 is closed, first 27 backs up, then we start seeing that spill onto sideroads like the 20th.
I can see it from my house and you always know when
there is an issue on 27 because you will see a steady stream of traffic
going down the 20th. When the Steam Show is on every August, on
the 15th Line just east of the 20th Sideroad, this section of road sees
a ton of traffic.
Yes, she will benefit from it being paved, so will I, so will every tax payer living in our area who uses the road on a regular basis, and so will all that traffic that gets redirected when 27 is backed up.
Should I have to drive an extra seven or eight km to get to
the Post Office just to avoid this section of terrible road because it
happens to be in the area where Councillor Jebb lives?
