Town invites feedback for traffic mitigation strategy

Public information session taking place Sept. 27
Signs telling drivers to slow down could be seen along Scanlon Avenue in Bradford in June.

The Town of BWG is developing a traffic mitigation strategy to help address existing traffic concerns in BWG and support safer and more livable streets for all users.

The strategy will include:

  • Background and best practice review: Summary of existing traffic conditions in BWG and opportunities to implement traffic calming measures to address traffic concerns; and
  • Traffic calming design guide: Development of a guide to help the town evaluate and address traffic calming requests, a toolbox of traffic calming measures that can be implemented to help address traffic concerns, and screening and warranting criteria to help select and prioritize traffic calming measures.

How residents can participate:

We understand that the people who live, work, and play in BWG have the best understanding of current traffic concerns as well as opportunities on how to address these concerns. The town would like to hear your ideas at the in-person public information centre (PIC), which will be held as follows:

When: Wednesday, Sept. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Where: BWG Leisure Centre — 471 West Park Ave., Bradford

The purpose of this PIC is to provide information about the project, gather feedback about traffic concerns and potential traffic measures, and explain next steps. During the PIC, display boards will be provided for attendees to review and provide comments and the project team will be available to answer questions and further discuss the project. If you are unable to attend the in-person PIC, we encourage you to:

  • Review the display boards online following the PIC at the study website:
  • Provide comments through the project website following the PIC
