NEW Pedestrian Crossovers in Rockwood

The Township of Guelph/Eramosa is pleased to announce the installation of TWO NEW Pedestrian Crossovers on Main Street South and Alma Street in Rockwood. These Pedestrian Crossovers are being funded and installed by the Ministry of Transportation. The Township also commends the Council of the Township of Guelph/Eramosa and Township staff for their ongoing support of this project. The Crossovers will be located on Main Street South at the Waterside Park (south of Bridge Street) and on Alma Street between Church Street and Inkerman, and will replace the current School Crossing; installations will occur mid September. The Township reminds the public to educate themselves on driver and pedestrian safety requirements. More information for drivers and pedestrians can be found here.
