The County of Simcoe, in partnership with the Towns of Midland and Penetanguishene, completed a Schedule “B” Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) in 2018 for the County Road 93 Complete Streets project. As an alternative to the existing signalized intersection, a roundabout option was considered and subsequently determined to be the preferred solution.

About the project
The value of construction for the County Road 93 roundabout is $7.8 million. Similar to a signalized intersection, traffic will need to slow down in advance of the roundabout. The current speed limit of this section of County Road 93 is 80 km/h and 60 km/h on Golf Link and Vindin. The speed limit will be reduced to 50 km/h from all four directions approaching the roundabout to ensure vehicles are approaching at a safe speed. The roundabout has been designed with two lanes of capacity to ensure it can handle the current and projected future traffic in the area.
The roundabout is scheduled to open on October 5, 2021. Golf Link Road will remain closed until mid-November for continued road enhancements.
