Traffic Pilot Projects

The City was testing several traffic solutions around town on a temporary basis over the fall. The expectation was that they would reduce speeding, increase safety, and clear up some confusing spots.

Over the course of the trial period, feedback from the public and technical data was collected. This will be combined with the public feedback survey (now closed) in a report to Council who will decide whether or not these pilot projects will become permanent installations.
