Dundas Place is Ready for the Holidays!

And it has reopened! Not only can one drive down Richmond Street utilizing all four lanes, but now you can drive down Dundas Place from Ridout Street to Richmond Street in both directions. What's Changed? The pedestrian zone (sidewalk) is twice the size it was before: Traditional parking meters were replaced with the Honk App: A total of 14 new bike corrals were installed from Ridout to Richmond: New Pedestrian Crossover located mid-block at Fanshawe College: What's Next?
