The City has been working with a consultant - Urban Systems Ltd and a Neighbourhood Traffic Advisory Committee in undertaking a comprehensive study to address traffic concerns along the River Road corridor from 207 Street to Carshill Street. The project team has shared the results of the study and discussed the proposed options for improvements to River Road at an Open House held on November 13, 2013. View the display boards.
Over 90% of residents who attended the Open House supported the concepts, with direction to work with individually affected property owners to develop acceptable solutions and to provide a walking path east of Darby Street. The City has completed the interim asphalt sidewalk east of Darby Street on the south side of River Road within the right-of-way.
The City is reviewing the implementation of the remaining traffic corridor improvements. Affected property owners have been contacted and meetings have been held with each property owner to discuss acceptability. These discussions are complete and the City is reviewing the next steps.
