New traffic lights for major intersection

A major intersection between Belleville and the City of Quinte West will get some upgrades early this summer.

Wallbridge-Loyalist Road is the boundary line between the two cities and the Hamilton Road intersection is a busy one.

Belleville and Quinte West have come to an agreement on cost-sharing for intersection improvements, including traffic lights.

In his report to city council recently, Manager of Transportation Joe Reid said this will help pedestrian as well as vehicle traffic.

Under the cost-sharing agreement, Quinte West will manage the road contract work since it is making significant improvements to its own Hamilton Road at the same time.

Belleville will pay $235,000 with Quinte West portion coming to $60,000 more, at $292,500.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of June.
