2 Neighbourhood Traffic Calming Guide Background The City of Brampton is a diverse urban municipality experiencing continual population and employment growth. Brampton also has a large commuting population and one of the highest vehicle trip rates within the Greater Toronto Area, which contributes to traffic issues on its main roads. Faced with traffic congestion and delays on the main roads, people p often look for quicker routes, which can lead to increased traffic volume, speeds and collisions on residential roads, decreasing the quality of life within a neighbourhood. Purpose of the Neighbourhood Traffic Calming Assessment i. Respond to public concerns related to traffic in residential neighbourhoods; ii. Assess and evaluate the existing traffic behaviour; iii. Engage affected residents; iv. Implement measures, if required, to reduce speeds, discourage through traffic, and minimize conflicts.

3 Purpose of Traffic Calming i. Increase the Safety of Neighbourhoods: alter traffic pattern and/or driver behaviour to improve traffic safety. ii. Improve the Liveability of Neighbourhoods: minimize negative impacts (i.e.. Noise, pollution, high traffic volume) to uphold and restore the sense of community. iii. Restore Streets t to their Designed Function: maintain i the intended d functions of local roads (to accommodate low to moderate volumes of traffic traveling at low speeds) and residential collector roads (distribute traffic between residential local roads and main roads). iv. Preserve Access and Minimize Impact to Emergency Service, Public Transit and Maintenance Providers: planning and consideration to not negatively impact these services. v. Promote Public Participation and Community Support: encourage resident communication and feedback in order to define a liveable solution.

9 Existing Condition Father Tobin Road: Existing Conditions 10.0 metres of Pavement on 23 metre ROW

10 Evaluation of Traffic Calming Measures The Following is a List of Criteria Used in the Evaluation of Traffic Calming Measures: Speed Reduction Effectiveness: o To achieve an 85th percentile speed of 45km/h, traffic calming measure devices should be implemented approximately 130 metres apart from each other. Maintenance/Construction Costs: o To provide the most cost-effective design, while achieving overall objectives. Priority Routes: o Minimum road width clearance and accessibility requirements should be taken into consideration for emergency and service vehicles which include: Police, Fire, EMS, Transit, etc. Residential Parking / Bike Lanes: o Maintain i on-street t parking and/or provide bicycle facilities (signed routes, sharrows, bike lanes). Operational Concerns: o Provide minimum road width clearance for snow removal vehicles. o Ensure proper drainage. o Ease of maintenance for street cleaning.

11 Proposed Option # 1 Option #1: Parking Lane (one side) Option #1 includes the reduction of the roadway width by providing a dedicated parking lane and two travel lanes Advantages i. Provides a buffer between traffic and pedestrians on the sidewalk ii. Maintains on-street parking for residents iii. Reduces available lane width for vehicular traffic by visually narrowing the roadway iv. Delineates travel lanes providing positive guidance for drivers Disadvantages i. Parked vehicles obstruct road maintenance operations (snow clearing, street sweeping) ii. Parked vehicles may reduce visibility for motorists exiting driveways

12 Proposed Option # 2 Option #2: Bicycle Lanes (both sides) Option #2 includes designating a portion of the roadway with pavement markings and signage for exclusive use by bicyclists. Advantages i. Provides a safe environment for cyclists to ride ii. Reduces available lane width for vehicular traffic by visually narrowing the roadway iii. Delineates travel lanes providing positive guidance for drivers Disadvantages i. Eliminates availability of on-street parking for residents

13 Your Involvement Is Important to Us There is an opportunity at any time during the study s process for the public to provide comments and input on the project. Comment sheets are available and should be submitted to the City s Project Manager. Contact information is shown below and provided in the handout.
