Effective October 2021, the speed limit on Manitoba Street (Muskoka Road 4) is reduced to 50 kilometres per hour. In early December, the District will also activate an upgraded, signalized Pedestrian Crossover in this area, near the community of Quinn Forest Drive.
The current 50 km/hr speed limit zone has been extended northwards on Manitoba St from approximately Wellington Street North to 780 Manitoba Street. The District advises that OPP enforcement has been notified of this speed limit reduction to ensure that motorists in the area are aware of the change.
The community will see the upgraded, and signalized Pedestrian Crossover activated in early December near Quinn Forest Drive and Manitoba Street. It will be fully automated and accessible with signals showing red and green lights for motorists, and walk and don’t walk signals for pedestrians. Accessible pedestrian signals instruct pedestrians when they have the right-of-way to cross and in which direction they may cross the intersection. The upgraded installation will be similar to the existing Pedestrian Crossover in downtown Bracebridge at the Manitoba Street and Mary Street intersection.
