Vehicle access maintained at Bright’s Grove Plaza

Published on

Sarnia has rejected a request from some residents to close off Kaymar Crescent at the Bright’s Grove Plaza to stop it being used as a cut-through route.

Despite being a small side street, Kaymar sees an average of 760 vehicles a day and nearly half of them use it as a cut-through to Lakeshore Road, a city traffic study found.

But others residents favoured maintaining the access, and closing it could have left the city open to a lawsuit from the plaza’s owners over lost business.

Council compromised last week, keeping the access but approving additional signs and a driveway island or other “traffic calming” measure to dissuade transport truck drivers from using Kaymar.

The plaza’s owners had already installed speed bumps this summer in an effort to discourage through traffic.
