Rennie's River East Traffic Pattern Review

Review completed. For information about the outcomes and status of these projects, check out the News Feed for Winter Avenue Final Recommendations, the Document Library and Life Cycle sections.

The traffic calming no-entry restriction on Winter Avenue at King’s Bridge Road has identified larger scale frustration with restricted turning movements in the area of Rennie’s River between Portugal Cove Road and King’s Bridge Road. The City is in the process of reviewing the existing traffic operations, circulation, and restrictions in the area to determine if changes can be made to improve network connectivity.

An important part of this review process is getting feedback from residents in the area and people who travel through the area on some possible changes that may be explored further. Information about the existing conditions in the area and preliminary ideas of some possible changes are summarized on the Rennie's River East Public Engagement Map.

Survey responses and comments/suggestions received on this page will be used to evaluate the next steps and recommendations of this assessment. Check out the What we Heard in the Document Library .

  • Winter Avenue Traffic Calming: Final recommendations

    over 1 year ago

    The Winter Avenue no-entry restriction via Kings Bridge Road will be removed the week of September 10th, once permanent speed cushions have been installed(External link) as a traffic calming measure on Winter Avenue.

    In 2017 the City implemented a no-entry restriction from King’s Bridge Road on to Winter Avenue to address traffic volume and speed concerns raised by residents in the area. Since then, the city has undertaken a review of traffic flow in the Rennie’s River area and used technical data collected on-site, staff observations, and public feedback, to prepare a report for Council on the impacts of this traffic calming project. The report(External link) was presented to Council in May and a final decision was made to lift the no-entry restriction and consider the installation of traffic calming speed cushions on Winter Avenue.

    As with all traffic calming projects, residents in the area received a survey to provide feedback on the proposed option. The majority of survey responses supported the installation of speed cushions(External link).

  • Results of Rennie's River Traffic Engagement

    almost 2 years ago

    During April and May, the City engaged with the public on existing traffic circulation and restrictions in the area of Rennie’s River between Portugal Cove Road and King’s Bridge Road to determine if changes can be made to improve road network connectivity.

    “What We Heard” from that engagement process is now available.

    We had an lots of interest in this project with over 1500 visits to this page; 428 valid surveys completed; 23 comments were submitted electronically; and a total 40 people attended one of the in-person information sessions.

    Feedback received from the public was discussed at the Committee of the Whole meeting on May 23, 2018 when the Transportation Engineering staff presented a report and recommendations overall. Council will vote on those recommendations at an upcoming Council meeting.
