Bingeman Park former Campground area
#1
Huh
Does anyone know what is being built on the [now completely flattened] former campground area at Bingeman Park? My only humble speculation is another (or more) of those MONSTROUS monolithic 'warehouse' buildings currently under construction a bit further west along Bingeman Parkway.  If that's it, I'm wondering why we need so much warehouse space in this area, now that basically nothing is manufactured here anymore...

I'm pretty sure that it was going be the launching off point for the new Highway 7 that is going to travel generally north of the existing Highway 7 alignment towards Guelph. A new bridge was going to built in that rough location. Of course, we have been hearing about this for years and it would not surprise me if we are still talking about this years from now.

The bridges are going to be west of the newly built warehouse.

It's the new hospital -- part of the feasibility study anyway.

Is that who the corrupt process is designed to advantage? At least there's a sidewalk now...so I guess it's not a guaranteed death to try and reach the location without a car.

Bingemans camping is still there.  They are booking for 2024 on the website.

That is most likely for the lower section.
