Completed Studies

Alta Vista Drive

The Alta Vista Drive Area Traffic Management (ATM) Study was initiated in the fall of 2008 by the City’s Area Traffic Management Unit to address traffic issues reported by the community.

The study area for the AltaVista Drive ATM Study was limited to Alta Vista Drive between Bank Street and Smyth Road.

The study was guided by a Public Working Group comprised of seven individuals providing a good representation across the community with representatives from the Alta Vista Drive Residents' Association and the Charles Hulse Public Elementary School.

The study followed the City of Ottawa's ATM Guidelines which have been approved by City Council. The guidelines are available elsewhere on the City's web site.

None of the measures listed under the City's ATM program have the potential to be considered as being any higher than Schedule "A" of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Process. As such, all measures under the City's ATM program are considered to have minimal environmental impacts.

The first Public Open House (POH) was held on Wednesday, December 10, 2008 at the Rideau Park United Church. Display boards used at the POH is available for viewing or downloading here. The boards cover the City's Area Traffic Management Process; traffic issues on Alta Vista Drive from Bank Street to Smyth Road; results of the recently completed data collection exercise; and potential measures that would be appropriate for consideration on Alta Vista Drive.

The second POH was held in the spring of 2009. The public was presented with potential solutions to address the identified issues. The display boards are provided on this site (see left navigation menu).

Following the second POH, a recommended plan was carried forward by the study team based on comments received from POH events and through technical review. This plan was approved as part of a Roadway Modification Approval (RMA) report under delegated authority. The measures will be implemented over time as funding becomes available.

Amiens Street Area Traffic Management Study

Belcourt Boulevard (now called Frank Bender Street)

The measures recommended in this report were developed through the process described in the City Council approved ATM Guidelines. This study was undertaken as a "localized" area traffic management study with the boundaries set as Belcourt Boulevard between Innes Road and Jeanne d'Arc Boulevard.

The intent of the ATM study was to address concerns raised by area residents with regards to speeding and aggressive driving practices along the subject section of Belcourt Boulevard. Belcourt Boulevard is classified as a collector road and provides a direct connection from Jeanne d'Arc Boulevard to Innes Road. While the high level of service provided by Belcourt Boulevard is considered a positive characteristic of the community when viewed in isolation, it has become a concern for some area residents, particularly those whose properties front directly onto this collector road. Belcourt Boulevard area residents suggested that traffic volumes, traffic speeds, aggressive driver behaviour, and the use of the street by non-local traffic has increased to the point that some residents now perceive the level and type of traffic to be a safety hazard and detrimental to the quality of the local environment they expect within their community. The recommended measures are intended to reduce speeds and aggressive driving behaviour.
