Traffic Calming Update - November 2020
Throughout the summer and fall of 2020, temporary speed humps were installed on Elizabeth Grove and Banner Lane in King City, and Park Heights Trail and Hill Farm Road in Nobleton. These temporary speed humps were installed as pilot projects as part of the development of the Traffic Calming Strategy. The construction of the speed humps were temporary in nature and needed to be removed to allow upcoming winter maintenance. A permanent type of speed hump was also piloted on Banner Lane and will remain. The draft Traffic Calming Strategy (Strategy) can be found on the SpeaKING website. Staff will be bringing forward the final Strategy for Council approval at the November 16, 2020 meeting. The Strategy recommends the successful speed hump pilot projects be converted to permanent speed humps. Staff will be bringing forward a capital project in January for Council’s approval to implement the Community Approach recommendations of the Strategy, which includes the conversion of the temporary speed humps to permanent.
