Rte 13 north of the main intersection of Rte 2 in Hunter River needs a sidewalk, or at the very least wider shoulders. It is very dangerous and many people walk the stretch from Karla’s Country Villas into the town to access various service (Royal Bank, Pharmacy, By the River Bakery, Irving, Post Office, Community Centre, library, churches, etc.).
Mar 8, 2018 – The PEI government has announced that they will be widening Rte 13 in Hunter River in 2018 (see CBC story here). Confirmation from the Department of Transportation confirms that it will include the section between Rte 2 and Karla’s Country Villas. The tender for the project can be found at https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/en/tender/peig-tie-4947 .
“The work includes: cold planing existing asphalt, earth excavation for widening, placing select borrow, placing granular A, placing concrete curb, placing asphalt levelling A, placing asphalt seal B, shouldering and all other work necessary to complete the Contract.”
It does not include a sidewalk, but the widened shoulders should allow for much safer pedestrian and cycle traffic.
- Bruce Ellis Your complaining about snow in the middle when people not trucks but live people have to walk on the side of the road in hunter river and have to jump into the snow banks cuz we don’t have a side walk to walk on to be safe. Something is wrong with the gov. They care more about trucks and cars then people
Brad Trivers Yes. Hunter River is brutally dangerous for walkers from Bungay Road up to the Rte 2 intersection. This is on the list.https://bradtrivers.com/issue/hunter-river-sidewalk/Dwight Parkman Yes and try and cross the road in the summer I am told the trucks can’t stop for a crosswalk go figure!
Dwight Parkman Bruce if we had the money the gov spent on the old Ellis house corner that would do all the walks . It’s to bad the last government was such a lame duck. You could always ask terry m funny I know.Bruce Ellis It makes me so mad when I’m with my grandson walking on the side of the road and if he goes hit the blood will be on the gov It’s like this you can talk until your blue in the face and nothing will get done. Only if one child gets killed then the gov will start to think about it
