Roads, Rides, & Residents

Consultation has concluded

We want to view our road and transportation services through the eyes of our users.

Getting residents around Town as safely and quickly as possible is one of our number one priorities - and we know that our transportation network needs to be continuously maintained to make this happen. We also know the technical reasons and regulations for prioritizing the restoration of certain roads and sidewalks over others. What we don't know, is how this makes an impact on YOU, which is why we're turning outwards to our residents to capture their experiences.

Not only do we want you to have a safe, smooth ride around town - but we want to create walkable, connected communities that you enjoy and want to explore. Roads that you feel safe driving on all year, trails that you want to take your dog for a walk on, and sidewalks that connect you to key places in your neighbourhood.

Your meaningful feedback will help us to further identify, analyze, and invest in the transportation systems that improve your quality of life.

What's your story?
Do you have a favourite trail? Are there roads you want us to fix sooner? Do you wish your neighborhood had traffic calming initiatives? Leave us your experience below about how you get around town now and how you would like to in the future.

Pick a place!

Drag and drop a pin on the map below to tell us what you currently like and what you wish we could improve. Sidewalks, trails, transit stops, roads - you name it. We want to hear it.

Tell your story

We want to better understand your experiences getting around town.

  • Could you walk to do most of your small errands?
  • How far is the distance to those places you need to reach regularly?
  • Are you able to take advantage of facilities and services near you?
  • Do you feel connected to your community?
  • Do you feel safe getting to your destinations?

Thanks for sharing your story!

    Parking around Goodfellow PS

    by mc, 10 months ago

    1. There is NO parking on 9th line both East and West of the driveway of Goodfellow P.S. Cars are parking along the road again, and you cannot see traffic coming when exiting the school driveway. Why isn't this enforced? Please put a police officer to ticket cars and vehicles DAILY.

    2. Cars parking along Wallace Ave to take children to Goodfellow PS should not be blocking driveways and also should not be parking so close to the 9th line intersection. It congests traffic on Wallace Ave and also prevents traffic moving westerly on 9th line. This should also... Continue reading

    Thanking you in "Advance"

    by Mark Sampson, 11 months ago

    I would like to understand the timing of the advance green light going east to west at 89 and 27 in Cookstown. The advance is not available at peak traffic times, and the traffic coming west is frequently backed up to the top of the hill, sometimes to 5th line! Why can there not be an advance green simultaneously in both directions?

    On the brighter side, when the traffic is backed up, people cannot travel at 80 km per hour through the 40 km zone. More enforcement is needed in all directions.

    Regards,

    Mark

    by Jodi, 11 months ago

    Basic busses with publicservice works would be safer for the blind. More on time and reliable service with regular bus drives would feel much safer for me, I'm blind and disabled these public service workers are trained and know how to help me in my situation

    Webster BLVD

    by Vincent9, 11 months ago

    Webster BLVD South of Innisfil beach road needs more stop signs or speed bumps. I live at the corner of Webster and Butler and lots of us have several young children. Drivers fly down Webster and it’s scary for children. They play and sometimes forget there surroundings. When cars fly around the corner at 50 KMPH its an accident waiting to happen. Then after it snows and you have snow piles it’s even harder to see the cars coming North towards Innisfil Beach Road. I went to the town to inquire about a stop sign but was told they did...

    Stroud

    by Darren, 11 months ago

    The side walks in stroud around Tim Hortons and the Back entrance from Foodland are very unsafe for children or anyone walking in them. They are consistently covered by cars in the drive through and they come flying out from food land. Anyone walking on that side walk will be hit from the cars blowing the side walk and stop sign. Not to mention the road being blocked all the way onto young street because of the drive through traffic !

    Cookstown Central Public School is a Nightmare for Parents

    by Mdali, 11 months ago

    The roads and maintenance in and around Cookstown Central Public School has been an absolutely treacherous experience from the first day I had to drop off and pick up my children. There is not enough shoulder space for parents to safely put their children in the car and there is a very large ditch beside where the cars park that requires a barrier yet all of this has been ignored by the town, the city and the county. There is also an issue with parents crossing the road with their children as many trucks drive up and down highway 27,... Continue reading

    Re lighting on 20th and the arteries running east and west

    by marygee, 11 months ago

    Would the city be able to provide better lighting on the side streets off of the 20th S Road?

    It is so difficult to see many of the Streets due to the lack of lighting when trying to make the turn onto these streets.

    Thank you


    Mary Granicolo

    Lefroy Roads etc

    by Kathleen Neville, 11 months ago

    I live on Pine Street in Lefroy. The potholes need to be addressed as it is brutal to try to drive (or walk) through this. Also, Pine Street is so busy with it being a thorofare. The commuters seem to use Pine Street to get through Lefroy. Also, the weekend warriors and the cottagers in the summer time are just brutal. Fridays thru Sunday and even Monday morning are just crazy with weekend commuters. Somehow, this needs to be stopped. At least have the police conduct radar along there some time.

    Managing the flow of traffic & those lines!! LOL

    by shepparlo, 12 months ago

    I don’t understand the new road painting lines. On some routes there’s just a bike lane, some have a bike and buffer and then others have bike, buffer, and parking lanes - sometimes these variances are all on the same street! And some streets have nothing. It’s very confusing and looks like a hot mess. I would have preferred one strategy to be used consistently rather than this. I’ve been an Alcona resident for over 16 years and have not been thrilled with the increased flow of traffic. It seems like all the stores are all centrally located, which is... Continue reading
