Highway 16 and 37 Intersection
Take the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure
Tell us how we are doing and where we can improve
The Highway 16 and 37 Intersection between the communities of Terrace and Thornhill currently operates as a four way stop intersection. An upgrade of this intersection is needed to support the increasing traffic volumes being seen along these corridors.
The project team has reviewed two options: a roundabout and a conventional intersection. Following a thorough examination of the two, a roundabout is the preferred option.
Details of the project include:
- Design and construction of a roundabout capable of accommodating the growing traffic needs of the Highway 16 and 37 corridors
$9.3 million ($1.7 million Federal funding; $7.6 million Provincial funding)
Design complete. Construction anticipated summer 2019.
- Improved highway safety: Roudabouts have 90% fewer vehicle fatalities, 76% fewer vehicle related injuries, and 35% fewer accidents
- Reduced congestion and delays for all users of Highways 16 and 37
- Improved safety for pedestrians and cyclists
- Reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
- Lower maintenance costs
- Construction is underway
- Scheduled completion, Fall 2019
