Road Construction Project

Permanent Traffic Calming Measures

Traffic calming is intended to improve the quality of life and safety for residents on traffic calmed streets, by achieving slower speeds and increasing safety for all road users.

The objective of traffic calming is to achieve uniform driving patterns at reduced travel speeds. That objective is consistent with resident expectations on roads where lower speeds are desired to enhance safety and livability in communities and neighbourhoods. This objective is not available on roads where higher speeds are desired.

Traffic Services staff within the Development Services department worked with ward councillors and resident feedback collected through a 2020 online interactive mapping tool to determine the locations of traffic calming measures for 2021.

Anticipated Schedule

Work will occur in September and October of 2021.

Affected Service

No service interruptions are anticipated.

Safety

The contractor's work will be focused within the travelled roadway. Although the contractor is required to conduct their work in a safe manner, we ask that motorists take extra caution during the construction period.

Traffic & Access Impacts

Minor traffic impacts should be expected as a result of short-term lane closures for traffic control. Traffic flow will be maintained throughout the work and vehicles will be unimpeded from accessing residences.
