...add to that the small Jockvale bridge is getting shutdown for several months over the summer to reinforce it knowing that the GB realignment isn't coming anytime soon so they need to spend more $ beefing up areas that will have to serve the community much longer than anticipated.

Anyone following Jan Harder or Barrhaven in general? She recently posted a couple important things on her lately in regards to Barrhaven.

1. Wanting to build a "downtown" Barrhaven around Marketplace with a future LRT spot.
2. Approval for widening Greenbank Rd. as been approved and scheduled for 2020.

Thoughts?

It's all over the BH social media feeds. Jan Harder mainly.

A few thoughts:

BH really needs a DT....a walkable space where people can gather, I'm 100% for it.

But as you can imagine most people's automatic reaction lately is to meet ANY BH development plans with skepticism given the state of the road infrastructure - can't blame them!

About the GB widening.....it's unclear whether they mean existing GB or the planned realignment. GB realignment is currently acting as a MAJOR bottleneck for the maturation of all of BH South. Very badly needed, for too many reasons to list. Some obvious, some less so.

Oh and the LRT is a pipe dream. They are talking about Environmental Assessments etc, but in reality we won't be seeing it all the way out to BH in our lifetime.

"As well on Wednesday City Council supported a motion to move $34 million dollars forward in 2020 to complete the design for the Greenbank Road re-alignment from Chapman Mills to Barnsdale. Included in the funding is money to purchase land that we will need along the corridor. This section was to start receiving implementation funding only in 2026. The project design includes a new four-lane road with two median lanes for rapid transit as well as a new bridge crossing the Jock River. I want to thank my colleagues for understanding and supporting this incredibly important project. It may not sound exciting but we can’t build any road without an environmental assessment and design. Now it will be my goal to figure out a way to pay for the building of the road. Stay tuned…."
