Townwide multi-modal transportation study put out to tender

Devon town council is going ahead with a plan to seek out a comprehensive review of all of Devon’s roadways, intersections, sidewalks, pathways, and all other transportation corridors.

At the Monday, Jan. 14 meeting a report was presented to council on the states goals of the review, dubbed the “multi modal transportation study”.

The study has a budget of $115,000 as approved in the 2013 capital budget, and will be awarded to a planning firm that is determined to be the best equipped and presents council with the best proposal.
