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.

  • Traffic Calming Pilot Project in Schomberg

    Two locations have been selected (Church Street, Western Avenue and Main Street) wherein flexible bollards will be installed along the centerline of Western Road and along the curb and centerline of Church Street. These locations have been marked in the field and have been sanctioned by the Ward Councillor. The traffic counters (ie. armadillo) have been deployed for pre and post monitoring to gauge their effectiveness.

    In 1998, the Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) and the Canadian Institute of Transportation Engineers (CITE) jointly published the Canadian Guide to Neighbourhood Traffic Calming to achieve an appropriate level of national standardization of traffic calming measures. This guide has provided guidance (opposed to setting standards) on the design and installation of various traffic calming measures.

    Traffic Calming is a term most commonly associated with physical features placed on a roadway to influence the speed of motor vehicles, discourage cut-through traffic and improve traffic safety and comfort levels for all users of residential streets. These traffic...

    Traffic Calming is a term most commonly associated with physical features placed on a roadway to influence the speed of motor vehicles, discourage cut-through traffic and improve traffic safety and comfort levels for all users of residential streets. These traffic calming measures, in turn, are designed to improve the quality of life for area residents and create a safer and friendlier community.

    Traffic calming solutions should be looked at as a community wide strategy to ensure that volume and speed concerns are not transferred to adjacent streets
