Traffic Calming Measures coming to selected Slow Streets!

Since May, we've designated 40km of Slow Streets with simple traffic barriers and signs to make it easier for residents to exercise and access businesses in their local neighbourhood.

This fall, we are implementing temporary traffic calming measures on selected Slow Streets. Traffic calming measures help reduce motor vehicle volumes and make these routes more comfortable for walking, cycling and rolling.

As part of the Slow Streets Upgrades, additional signage and concrete barriers will be installed and there will be some local changes to parking and traffic circulation. This week, we will install traffic calming measures on two Slow Streets:

  1. Wall Street near Oxford and Cambridge Park
  2. Ontario Street near Riley Park

Review the Supplemental Design Guide to learn more about each traffic calming measure and the rationale behind the transportation upgrade. We will regularly update this guide and the Slow Streets Map with Traffic Calming Upgrades locations.

Once the measures are installed, we will be asking the public to share their feedback about how these changes are working. We will monitor these traffic calming measures by reviewing public feedback, collecting data and making adjustments as needed.

The planned upgrades align with upcoming and long-term transportation projects such as existing and future greenways, bike lanes, and traffic calming measures.
