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.

  • The Township has completed receiving feedback on traffic calming from the public via the survey. The data is now in the process of being compiled, which will be reviewed by the Township’s consultant WSP for consolidation. WSP will then formulate a draft standard (policy and procedure) for traffic calming, which will then be presented to the public for further feedback. Once this engagement process closes, WSP and the Township will finalize and present the traffic calming standard to Council for their consideration and adoption. Once we have additional timelines for the above, we will provide an update here.
    Please take a few minutes to complete this five question survey. The results will be used to help us better understand what residents like and don't like about traffic calming measures.
