City hall is looking for input on a rush hour choke point that frustrates many drivers daily.
Open houses are planned in October on the big plans in the works for Prest Road.
Plans include: wider road, bike lanes, four lanes, even roundabouts.
The upgrades proposed are for the stretch of Prest all the way from Bailey Road to Chilliwack Central Road.
An engineering design has been completed that shows upgrades to the year 2051.
Preliminary phases would likely see intersection improvements and road widening, which includes bicycle lanes. By phases three and four, the road will likely be four lanes.
Most interesting and controversial is the concept of roundabouts at Bailey, McGuire, Praire Central and Chilliwack Central roads, as well as Highway 1. The open houses are planned for: Oct. 1 at Promontory Heights elementary school (46200 Stoneview Dr.); Oct. 8 at C.H.A.N.C.E. Alternate School (7780 Prest Rd.); and Oct. 10 for F.G. Leary fine arts elementary school (9320 Walden St.). Times are 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. For more information, contact the city at 604-793-2907.
