Proposed traffic-calming measures for 8 streets

March 25, 2014 -

The City is inviting residents on sections of eight streets to come one of two open houses to review and ask questions on planned traffic-calming measures.

"The City receives numerous concerns about speeding in various residential neighbourhoods every year. Traffic calming measures are aimed at improving safety on these streets," says Mark Van Buren, Director of Engineering.

The planned traffic calming measures vary according to the street and may include speed humps, curb extensions, mini-roundabouts and driver-feedback speed signs. The planned measures are set to be installed during the 2014 construction season.

Residents who have addresses fronting or flanking the affected areas have received invitations encouraging them to attend one of these two open houses. 

Displays of the proposed measures for all eight streets listed below will be available at both of the following open houses:

  • 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, April 14 in the Rona Room, INVISTA Centre, 1350 Gardiners Rd.
  • 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 16 in Memorial Hall, City Hall, 216 Ontario St.

Traffic-calming Measures are proposed for:

  • Cataraqui Woods Drive from Bayridge Drive to Midland Avenue.
  • Katharine Crescent from Woodbine Road to Lisa Street.
  • Lincoln Drive from Bayridge Drive to Development Drive.
  • Kingscourt Avenue from  First Avenue to Third Avenue
  • St. Martha Street  from Greenwood Park Drive to Fieldstone Drive
  • Barrie Street from Pine Street to York Street
  • Robert Wallace Drive  from Runnymede Road to Miles Avenue
  • College Street from Union Street to Hill Street
