New Hamburg Pedestrian Crosswalk Construction Project

Responding to public concerns about the lack of a safe crossing on Huron Street, the Region of Waterloo completed a study which confirmed that the amount of pedestrian traffic warrants a new crosswalk at this location.

In our continuing efforts to maximize service and safety for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists on our roads, the Region of Waterloo is considering installing a new crosswalk on the west side of Huron Street at Mill Street in New Hamburg.

A Level 2 Pedestrian Crossover is planned to be installed at this location. This crosswalk is different from a regular crosswalk because it uses extra signage as well as pavement markings. In this type of crosswalk, pedestrians have the right-of-way, and cars must stop until a pedestrian has completely crossed the crosswalk. Learn more about pedestrian crossovers.

In order to build the crosswalk on the west side of Huron Street at Mill Street, 8 parking spots on the south side of Huron Street opposite the end of Mill Street will have to be removed. One spot on the north side of Huron Street just east of Mill Street would also need to be removed.

We need your help. Let us know what you think about this project by taking a very quick survey.
