Broadview Avenue – Traffic Calming Study

On this page
Project status


The City of Ottawa is conducting a traffic calming study for Broadview Avenue in the vicinity of Notre Dame High School, Broadview Avenue Public School, and Nepean High School. This study was initiated as part of the Traffic Calming in School Areas initiative of the City’s Road Safety Action Plan (RSAP).

The purpose of this study is to reduce the negative impacts of motorized traffic and promote safety of students.

Initial Online Consultation

Tell us what you think!

We are seeking your input on locations of concerns for this traffic calming study. We encourage you to complete the online survey by April 29, 2022.


By filling out this survey, residents can help us to confirm the primary traffic concerns on Broadview Avenue (near the schools) and share ideas to promote student safety and make this a better roadway for all road users including pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists. Public feedback is an important component and will help us develop potential solutions to address your traffic concerns.

Traffic Calming

Traffic calming is the combination of mainly physical measures that help to reduce the negative effects of motor vehicle use, alter driver behaviour, and improve conditions for non-motorized street users. Traffic calming studies recommend localized retrofits to the roadway to address traffic concerns as opposed to a complete reconstruction of the street. More information about the types of traffic calming suitable for City streets.

Next steps

After the Online Survey closes, we will share an As We Heard It report that summarizes the feedback received. Feedback from the survey and other stakeholders will be reviewed along with traffic data to develop potential traffic calming concept plans. Once ready, these plans will be shared with the public for feedback. Stay tuned!
