Tecumseh Town Council approved the implementation of on-street parking on both sides of Tecumseh Road from Shawnee Road to Bedell Street at their Tuesday evening meeting.

The decision follows a motion from Council directing Administration to look at the feasibility of adding on-street parking on Tecumseh Road to replace 26 off-street parking spaces from Municipal Lot #2, which were lost when Council declined to renew the lease with the property owner.

The plan will see the reconfiguration of travel lanes by converting one eastbound and one westbound lane to parking between Shawnee Road and Bedell Street until the total reconstruction of Tecumseh Road is completed as part of the Community Improvement Plan Streetscape project.

This will see 37 spaces added on the north side and 27 on the south side of Tecumseh, with traffic signal modifications required for the intersections at Lesperance and Shawnee.

The eastbound right lane on Tecumseh Road at Shawnee will also be turned into a right turn lane and terminating this lane at the Shawnee Intersection.

This interim parking configuration will result in 126 parking spaces in the Tecumseh Road corridor, up from 89 previously.

Administration will put together the design and tender a contract for the work with expected to take place later this year. The estimated cost is $30,000.
