Traffic Calming Pilot Projects
We pilot tested some traffic calming safety measures in areas that have been reported as high-speed zones, despite the posted speed limit. We want your feedback on the pilot tests (see survey tab). The following presents the locations and traffic calming measures tested:
Shore Acres Drive
On-road pavement marking with the speed limit sign wording (50 km/h).
Belle Aire Beach Road
Chicanes with a barrier curb and barrels.
Flexible bollards, speed cushions, and a raised pedestrian crossing.
The locations were selected based on a number of criteria including speeding history, collision history, a GIS-based analysis, and more. The type of traffic calming measures were chosen based on proven effectiveness, cost and suitability for the location.
This pilot project ran from August 26 to October 11, 2022. The data collected will help evaluate the impact of these measures. The information will be used to inform a 10-year traffic calming program, policy, and traffic calming design guide.
The online survey, available October 31 to November 30, 2022, will help assess how residents feel about these traffic calming measures and their level of effectiveness.
We look forward to sharing the results with you as we continue to make improvements to road safety in Innisfil!
