Traffic Calming Project Winds Down In Bracebridge

Posted: 2021-09-09 07:30:00 By: thebay

The Town of Bracebridge concluded a trial traffic calming improvement project on Wellington Street North this week. The intent of the closure was to reduce the amount of cut through traffic being generated, and to reduce traffic flows in the area.

In 2020, Public Works Department staff completed a traffic study of the Wellington Street North corridor to review ongoing concerns with traffic movements related to speed, stop control disobedience, traffic volumes and truck traffic.

The closure will begin to be removed next week as staff have been able to collect associated traffic data, and prepare for winter operations.

The collected data will be reviewed with a staff report prepared and presented to Council providing information on the results and impacts of the project.
