What are the traffic benefits of the TH 5 realignment alternative?
Realigning TH 5 to connect to the CSAH 14/Manning Avenue intersection would consolidate two intersections (TH 5/Manning Avenue and CSAH 14/Manning Avenue) into one, thereby simplifying intersection access. This alternative also includes realigning Manning Avenue to provide a more continuous and efficient north-south route. From a system standpoint, this alternative yields the highest reduction in vehicle-hours traveled in the area and helps improve operations on local roads.
