Staff 240 Rep.

With concerns to West Fernie becoming a part of the City of Fernie I am curious about the highway between the bridge and Silver Rock. There is currently a turning lane on to McDonald Ave, which is part of the City of Fernie. With regards to Bylaw 1400 Section 6(1) if that stretch of the highway becomes part of the city of Fernie will they be putting turning lanes in for the remaining 4 streets? My main concern is, what happens to the properties along the highway? I’m not an engineer, but I am pretty sure the highway will have to expand in order to add more pavement (room) for the turning lane…(June 12, 2014)
