Milton council is set to discuss the implementation of an all-way stop at the intersections of McLaughlin Ave. and Asleton Blvd. at an upcoming meeting.

According to the council report, Town staff has received several inquiries requesting that an all-way stop be installed at the intersection due to reports of parked vehicles on the boulevard getting hit by cars turning from Asleton Blvd. onto McLaughlin Ave.

This has occurred four times within the last year, according to the report.

The justification for the all-way stop is that it is considered a three-legged intersection within an urban area.

Additionally, McLaughlin Ave. is a collector roadway running east and west between Asleton Blvd. and Santa Maria Blvd. with a posted speed limit of 50 kilometres per hour.

Asleton Blvd. is also a collector roadway running north and south between Leiterman Dr. and Transom Cres. and Megson Terr., with a posted speed limit of 50 kilometres per hour.

According to the council report, the cost to install the appropriate signage and pavement markings will be approximately $600.00, which would be provided for within the 2022 Operating Budget.

The council meeting where this will be further discussed is set to take place on Apr. 11.
