Wil this delay the announcement of the preferred option (which we were supposed to get this Friday, the 10th)?

EDIT: Answered my own question - the delay is due to the public workers' strike in Cambridge and has no Regional basis, so we should get the report on time.

Yeah, that's what Mike Boos was saying on facebook. It'll be nice to see that!

The new dates and locations are:
Thursday, Feb. 23 – 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Lions Arena (Hall), 20 Rittenhouse Rd, Kitchener.
Tuesday, Feb. 28 – 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Kin Club of Cambridge, 1400 Hamilton St., Cambridge.
Wednesday, March 1 – 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., Newfoundland Club, 1500 Dunbar Rd., Cambridge.
The region said there would be a second round of public consultations in late 2017, after which a preferred route will be chosen and sent to regional council.

Very happy that the Maple Grove segment is not being preferred, and happy there will be a stop in Preston

Nice! I like the proposed alignment.

Question: Why so much more than Phase 1 to build? Is it the two river crossings and required bridges?

Also: using C1a to avoid two grade separations that would move the stop by ~1 block.
