All 2017 pilot projects have finished. For information about the project, check out the Frequently Asked Questions section.

This location was identified as a candidate for a pilot project because of many concerns that have been raised by the public about the area as a confusing and hazardous location.

During the trial period the City’s Transportation Engineering staff monitored the area. Near the end of the pilot project a survey was circulated to gather direct feedback from the public. The observations and public feedback informed the evaluation to Council.

Council decided to proceed with permanent implementation of the Duckworth Street -Plymouth Road Loop, as soon as funding can be assigned. Information on Council's decision can be found in the link here (minutes of the April 16 regular meeting of Council). Check out the Notice to Residents under Document Library for details on the changes made to each street during the pilot.

    CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

    Infrastructure to support changes for two traffic pilot projects downtown has been removed in advance of snow clearing operations beginning for the winter. Former conditions have now been reinstated. 

    In August, the City announced two traffic pilot projects downtown: the reconfiguration of Church Hill with Veteran’s Square; and Duckworth Street, Plymouth Road one-way loop. The purpose of these projects was to test enhancements to pedestrian safety, traffic flow, and parking availability. 

    The City sought public feedback on these and other pilot projects through an online survey which is now closed.

    Church Hill and Veteran’s Square reconfiguration 

    Plymouth Street and Duckworth Street one way loop 

    Kenmount Terrace mini-roundabout 

    Winter Avenue no entry restriction 

    The City’s transportation engineering staff have been monitoring each of the areas. The public feedback that received through this online survey will inform the evaluation and be presented to City Council. Once presented, Council will determine if the pilot project changes will become permanent at these locations.
