A twice-postponed public meeting about a roundabout proposed for Highway 5 in Clearwater will take place on Thursday, Feb. 7, according to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. Two sessions will be held, 2 – 4 p.m. and 6 – 8 p.m.

MLA Terry Lake has indicated he plans to attend. If possible, he will be at both sessions, he said.

The drop-in open house will be held at the Clearwater Legion Hall on Glen Road.

Drawings of the proposed roundabout plus traffic flow information will be available for review and discussion.

The public meeting was previously scheduled to occur in mid-December but was postponed because of a tragic accident involving two local teachers. It was postponed again in mid-January because the ministry did not have enough of the information put together that it wanted.

The proposed roundabout has become a major topic of discussion and controversy within the community.
