Traffic calming program
We’ve heard from residents that they are looking for ways to slow down vehicles, manage traffic volumes, and increase safety in their neighbourhoods. That’s why we’re starting a new traffic calming program to address these issues and make a more comfortable environment for everyone.
Delbrook Avenue Traffic Calming
Delbrook Avenue has been selected for the Traffic Calming Program in 2024. We are looking for local area residents to participate in a hands-on workshop with transportation planners to design solutions that will be implemented on Delbrook Avenue in 2024.
Here’s how to get involved:
- Date: March 7, 2024
- Time: 6pm-7:30pm
- Location: Delbrook Recreation Centre (Maple Room)
UPDATE: This workshop has reached its capacity limit, and registration is now closed. Please email us at email@example.com to be added to the waitlist. A second workshop will be considered if there is enough interest by March 1, 2024. Please make sure you include your full name and street address.
In November 2023, Council endorsed the creation of a new, citizen-centred Traffic Calming Program that aims to implement road safety measures in locations where the community has expressed a keen interest in exploring traffic calming options.
Traffic calming uses physical design and other measures to improve safety for all road users by reducing traffic speeds and volumes.
How does the program work?
The Traffic Calming Program focuses on taking a more comprehensive and inclusive approach to road safety.
Every year, staff will catalogue inquiries and requests for traffic calming from the community. One location will be selected each year based on the number of concerns and staff-determined eligibility criteria, including speed and volume data.
Staff will then engage with residents to develop a community-driven solution for this corridor within the available budget.
Local Area Service Projects
If a location is not prioritized as a part of the Traffic Calming Program, residents may wish to pursue Local Area Service Projects (LASP). Projects completed under LASP are resident-funded.
