Turning Left Onto the Causeway Will Be A Little Trickier For A While

According to a County release, due to technical difficulties with the traffic signal controls located at the intersection of Ward Street and James A. Gifford Causeway in Bridgenorth, drivers will experience longer than usual delays when turning left from Ward Street onto the Causeway for the next week.

The County Of Peterborough Public Works department says it is aware of the problem and is working to resolve it.

For now, left turns won't be easy. But life will return to normal eventually.
