New large (but generic) apartment building planned for Coverdale Road, just to the west of Bella Casa.

I think the original plan (12-15 years ago) was for a motel.

It seems like there is a lack of imagination or rules on how buildings should look... 4 floors... fine, but try and go with a better design and less fake plastic siding.

Driving across the causeway today it indeed seems the bridge pillars are quite high so unless they plan on having the bridge have a drive up on each side an alignment with the overpass could be a possibility as previously discussed. Anyone with some inside info able to clarify the height discrepancy?

I remember seeing someone who was talking about the Height of the new bridge, and it having to do with 1. To remove the flooding issues within the area, and 2. Something about Height discrepancy in the land on both sides of the river so I'm guessing it has something to do with that.

I took a screenshot of this image from the town council minutes regarding a potential bypass & new culvert for mill creek. It would connect to Bridgedale bvld. I believe they want it done within 5 years.

Interesting find Josh, thanks.

I find the image supplied with the document difficult to look at, so I did my own interpretation of what they seem to have in mind:



I understand what they mean when they talk about infrastructure (culvert) replacement and mitigation of flooding risk, and while this may be true, I think it is pretty obvious that what Riverview town council really wants to do is to drive traffic towards (the future) Bridgedale Blvd and to Gunningsville Blvd (and by extension, also to Findlay Park). I'm sure they want to do this to spur further commercial development along this corridor. Whether this would actually happen or not is difficult to predict, but I can see the wheels turning in the town planning department, and they no doubt think this is a golden opportunity to get provincial and federal funding to build Bridgedale Blvd. I'll give them an "A" for effort.

I have mixed feelings about stopping up Hillsborough Road at Mill Creek, but it would accomplish decreasing through traffic within a primarily residential neighbourhood, and should decrease right turning inbound traffic onto the Gunningsville Bridge (something that will be complicated by the new traffic alignment currently underway).

Its more like this. Less drastic. The red is what would be on both options. The blue is option 1 and the orange is option 2.


While I was at it, I made some other future proposals for the 114.
The blue would be phase 1 and the red would be phase 2. I put cul-de-sacs by one of the culverts anticipating its inevitable washout, at which time it wouldn't be replaced.

Yeah, I guess you're right, the connector between Bridgedale Blvd and Hillsborough Rd will be a lot closer to Mill Creek than I depicted in my rendering.

This however doesn't take away the fact that the town still wants a reason to justify construction of Bridgedale, and to make Gunningsville Blvd and Findlay Park more attractive for commercial development.

As an aside, I see that you're using Photobucket. Have they reinstated free photo hosting????

Yeah they lost so much traffic so the made it free again as far as I know.

I think they also don’t want to upgrade Hillsborough Road so this will allow them to do this.
