Olde Town Traffic Calming Pilot Program

Program Overview

At the end of January 2018, temporary traffic calming devices were installed on Alder, Andrews and Bush Streets as part of the City’s Olde Town Traffic Calming Pilot Program.


All of the speed humps, speed cushions, speed tables, traffic circles and chicanes were constructed out of rubber or temporary material that may be removed and reused elsewhere in the city after the conclusion of the program.

Based on resident feedback and data recently collected on site, City staff will be proposing permanent traffic calming measures at the City Council Infrastructure Committee meeting held in Council Chambers June 21. The City Council is then tentatively scheduled to review this proposal during its July 2 meeting.

Residents can also expect the temporary chicanes, located on Andrews Street, to be removed in the coming weeks and replaced with a temporary speed hump. Thanks to public feedback, it’s clear the chicanes are the least effective and desired traffic calming device. The speed hump – like the other temporary devices throughout Olde Town – will remain in place until a permanent solution is determined.

History


In early 2017, City Council allocated $100,000 for traffic calming measures in Olde Town.

Staff has gathered resident feedback through surveys and also at a neighborhood meeting earlier in August about preferred traffic calming measures and potential locations.
