Traffic will be rerouted on a new road called Division Avenue that will run through the development.

Improvements include the installation of a new signalized intersection at Terlane Avenue – which will act as one of the main entrances into Belmont Market – bike lanes, a new sidewalk on the east side of Jacklin Road (fronting the development) as well as landscaping and boulevard improvements.

Additional turn lanes and through lanes will be added at the intersection of Jacklin Road and Jenkins Avenue to improve traffic flow.

The Capital Regional District will also be replacing two existing water mains and West Shore Environmental Services will be extending sewer services from Jenkins Avenue south to the Galloping Goose trail. Hydro lines on the west side of the street will be installed underground.

Businesses along Jacklin will remain open and fully accessible. Area residents will have to come from the south and travel northbound into the area.
