Motorists traveling south of Sunderland can expect the intersection of Durham Regional Road 13 and Lake Ridge Road to be signalized in 2018.

In 2020, the Region has proposed reconstruction further west along Regional Road 13, spanning from 850 metres west of Sideroad to 1.5 kilometres west of the same.

“Work has been ongoing in 2016 and 2017 to relocate utilities which includes clearing trees, clearing brush and removing fences. Hydro One and Bell Canada will be continuing their Stage 1A and 1B utility relocation work this fall,” reads the Region’s update.

“The proposed reconstruction includes, where required, changes to the road grades to improve traffic visibility, wider traffic lanes and shoulders, installation of curb and gutter, drainage improvements, and driveway entrance regrading and widening.”

The Region is in the process of contacting property owners within Stage 1A construction limits to finalize design of the drainage improvements and changes to driveway entrances.
