Sherwood Drive traffic calming study

Underway

Sherwood Drive traffic calming study

In response to traffic concerns raised by residents regarding Sherwood Drive, the City of Ottawa has initiated a study to address these concerns.

This study will investigate traffic conditions and driver behaviour on Sherwood Drive, reconsider previous traffic calming recommendations that emerged from an older study, and develop new recommendations. Please note that this study will focus on key locations within the means of the Neighbourhood Traffic Calming (NTC) program capacities.

Once study recommendations have been finalized and funding secured, the approved traffic calming plan would proceed to design and construction. The entire process from study initiation to final construction can take approximately 2.5 to 4 years to complete.

Information on traffic calming

Traffic calming is defined as the combination of mainly physical measures that reduce the negative effects of motor vehicle use, alter driver behaviour and improve conditions for non-motorized street users. For more information, please refer to the Traffic Calming Design Guidelines.

Complete our online survey

To evaluate whether there is a reasonable level of support to continue proceeding with the study, and to understand your concerns related to traffic along Sherwood Drive, we encourage you to complete the online survey by November 16, 2020.

By filling out this survey, residents can help us identify the primary traffic concerns on Sherwood Drive and share ideas for making this a better roadway for all road users including pedestrians, cyclists, transit users, and motorists.

Next Steps

We are currently in the process of gathering public feedback through the online survey. After the survey closes, we will share an “As We Heard It” report that summarizes feedback. We will then gather traffic data and other necessary information to help develop potential concepts for Sherwood Drive. Once ready, these concepts will be shared with the public for feedback.
