DIEPPE, N.B. — In the future, drivers can expect a couple of extra stops on their routes through Dieppe.
The town’s council has agreed to spend approximately $550,000 to install traffic lights.
One set of traffic lights will be placed at Dieppe Boulevard and LeGrand Boulevard and another at Dieppe Boulevard and Harrisville Boulevard with the participation of the provincial government.
Council approved spending $450,000 in municipal money while the province will chip in $100,000 this year and reimburse the town $110,000 next year.
The $110,000 is earmarked for continuation of the Amirault Street improvement project.
Town public works manager Roland Richard says he doesn’t anticipate the lights will be in place before the fall, possibly the winter, since tenders have not yet been called.
The tender call will go out immediately now that council has approved the money.
