Public Meeting for Residents of Sunshine Gardens / Rookwood Avenue / Waggoners Lane Rescheduled

The City of Fredericton has rescheduled a public meeting for the residents of the Sunshine Gardens / Rookwood Avenue / Waggoners Lane area of the city to explore an active transportation feasibility study planned for the area.

The new meeting, hosted by Councillor John MacDermid, is scheduled for Thursday, April 25 at the Stepping Stone Centre, 15 Saunders Street, from 6:30 - 8:00pm.

Rookwood Avenue: Trans-Canada Trail Connection will explore the feasibility of filling several gaps within the active transportation trail network in the core of Fredericton, as well as the impacts of a roundabout at Waggoner’s Lane / Rookwood Avenue to improve traffic, pedestrian, and transit safety and efficiency.

Rookwood Avenue: Trans-Canada Trail Connection is one of three feasibility studies approved for funding from a successful application made by the City, to the 2018 Municipalities for Climate Innovation Fund from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) for the feasibility and preliminary design of transportation projects that aim to reduce GHG emissions.
