The Township of King has created a Traffic Calming Strategy that is now available for public review. Our goal is a slower, safer KING.

The focus of this program is on residential streets where excessive speeding is prevalent, particularly in neighbourhoods with high numbers of cyclists and/or pedestrians sharing the road with motorized traffic. 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.

We thank everyone who has already provide input to help shape and guide this new traffic calming strategy for King Township.
