Traffic Calming Pilot Project

The Township of King is commencing a traffic calming project.

Our goal is a slower, safer King.

King is seeking community input on traffic calming throughout the township

The focus of this program is on school zones and residential streets at locations where excessive speeding is prevalent, particularly in neighbourhoods with high numbers of cyclists and/or pedestrians share the road. It is not about reducing congestion, reducing trucks or eliminating cut-through traffic.

Traffic calming is creating a safer roadside environment by reducing speeds and encouraging responsible driver behavior.

Council has prioritized traffic calming and we need your help to identify hotspots and to provide tangible solutions and feedback.

The information you provide will help shape and guide a new traffic calming policy for King Township.

We have created several opportunities for feedback and we welcome your input to help shape our community vision of a slower, safer KING.

Please browse this page to learn more about traffic calming, take a survey and use a map feature to place pins where you think traffic calming measures would be most effective. You also get to choose which type of traffic calming measures you would like to see installed.
