Lakeshore Launches Traffic Management Survey

What is this project about?

The Municipality of Lakeshore is looking for feedback on existing and/or new traffic management  policies in response to traffic, speed, and safety related concerns raised by residents. Two key policies, as described below, will be completed as part of this project:

Development of a Speed Limit Policy

The Speed Limit Policy Review will look at:

  • speed limit policies used by other municipalities to review and monitor the effectiveness of speed limits;
  • establish a process to evaluate and recommend speed limit changes on urban roadways based on resident concerns within Lakeshore; and
  • provide recommendations and assess the impact related to larger area speed limit reductions in residential (urban) areas of the Municipality.

Traffic Calming Policy Review

The Traffic Calming Policy Review will:

  • review and improve upon Lakeshore’s existing traffic calming policy;
  • research the latest and best practices used for traffic calming in other municipalities;
  • develop guidelines for receiving, evaluating, and implementing traffic calming measures in response to concerns raised by residents; and
  • develop a recommended process for making decisions about the types of traffic calming measures to use, their effectiveness, and prioritizing requests for new traffic calming projects.

How can I get involved?

Public input is essential to the success of this project. Opportunities to provide input, include an online community survey and a Public Information Centre (date and time to be announced).
