DIEPPE, N.B. — A consultant is set to report back to Dieppe council and residents next month, following a public meeting on planned roadwork.

Ruescure, a Quebec-based consulting firm that specializes in neighborhood traffic studies, gathered residents’ thoughts at a public meeting Wednesday on plans to alleviate traffic congestion in the area of Acadie Avenue, Champlain Street and Virginia Street.

“It was a very good meeting and people’s concerns were taken seriously,” said city administrator Gerard Belliveau.

About 40 people attended the meeting to learn about the planned roadwork, which Belliveau said could start this spring.

The city’s plans include adding a second left-turn lane on Acadie Avenue, to ease the movement of traffic onto Champlain Street heading toward Moncton. As well, a canalized right-turn lane with a traffic island, is planned to help traffic heading east along Champlain Street turn onto Acadie Avenue. An extension of Virginia Street to the intersection of Champlain Street is also planned. The addition would be a one-way, heading toward Champlain Street.

The next meeting is scheduled for Feb. 25 at the Rotary Lodge in St-Anselme Rotary Park.
