The Oromocto First Nation, along with the Town of Oromocto, CFB Gagetown, and the New Brunswick Department of Transportation and Infrastructure, have started a safety study focussed on the intersections of Waasis with each of Ganong Street and Hiawatha Avenue/MacDonald Avenue. Dillon Consulting Limited has been selected to assist with this study. Using speed and traffic data, collision records, personal accounts of near misses, and engineering judgement, the project team will identify key issues and opportunities for improvement. Pedestrian, cyclist, and driver safety will all be examined as part of this study.
Once the existing condition is understood, the engineers at Dillon will assist the project team with development of alternative design solutions. These will ultimately be brought forward for discussion and refinement in consultation with community members before a final recommendation is made. In the coming weeks, you may see staff from Dillon in bright orange safety vests collecting data within the study area.
These team members will be counting pedestrian, cyclist, car and truck traffic and checking to see if there are any things that may impact a driver's or pedestrian's ability to see far enough down the road to make safe decisions. They will also be taking notes on the widths and condition of existing roads, sidewalks, guiderail, pavement marking, and signs.
If you see one of our team members, definitely wave to say hello, but in the interest of safety please refrain from interactions while they are working along the roadway. If you'd like more information on the project, or would like to provide information related to traffic violations or potential solutions, please reach out to OFN Representative Bob Paul at 357-7418, or via email at Robert.firstname.lastname@example.org, or Dillon Project Manager Ryan Dunbar at 506-444-8820.
