A fix is coming for a pair of streets in Amherstburg that share similar names.

Marsh Drive and Marsh Court are located along a continuous laneway, separated by Knobb Hill Drive, north of Texas Road.

Town administration had received complaints from residents who reside both streets. The worry is there that the name duplication could confuse emergency services, resulting in delayed arrival emergency vehicles.

In addition, there are five duplicate addresses used on both Marsh Court and Marsh Drive making it problematic to give the entire length of street one common name, as many of the houses have their house numbers etched in concrete and the cost of changing the house numbers could be significant.

The administration had recommended enhanced signs,  but at Monday evenings council meeting, Councillors voted to change one of the street names in accordance with the “Street Name Change” Policy.
