1 Uptown West Neighbourhood Transportation Study Public Open House #2 Information for Review As we move towards the second public open house on May 6, 2014, information on the alternative solutions that will be presented is provided for the community to review in advance of the open house. Alternative Network Scenarios Four network scenarios are being presented at the public meeting on May 6. The scenarios have been developed using technical data and includes feedback from the public task force, the October 30 Public Engagement Session, various technical agencies and City staff. The scenarios attempt to address the issues and concerns raised through the study while recognizing the needs of emergency response providers, city services such as snow plow operations, garbage and recycling collection, and maintenance works. The three alternative scenarios, in addition to the business as usual scenario, have been developed to address the main transportation issues identified by neighbourhood residents. Graphical representations of these alternative scenarios and the various measures at strategic locations within the neighbourhood are attached. In each of the alternative scenarios, routes through the neighbourhood are still possible (but less direct in most cases) in order to accommodate residents, businesses, school bus routes on Roslin Avenue, and patrons to community destinations within the neighbourhood. The introduction of less direct routes and measures to slow the movement of vehicles through the neighbourhood are anticipated to discourage future traffic infiltration onto neighbourhood streets. During the development of the alternative scenarios, we have heard feedback from multiple perspectives. We have heard that the scenarios developed will address the issues and objectives of the study. We have heard that the scenarios do not go far enough in protecting the neighbourhood. We have heard that the scenarios go too far and disrupt the ability of residents to travel easily in and out of their own neighbourhood. We have heard that there will be costs associated with constructing and maintaining the traffic calming measures, as well as ongoing cost impacts to City and Regional operations (snow plowing, garbage and recycling collection, emergency response). The study seeks to reach a balanced solution that recognizes all of the above. Waterloo Service Centre 265 Lexington Court, Waterloo, Ont.

2 Uptown West Neighbourhood Transportation Study For your consideration, the traffic calming measures for each of the alternative scenarios are described below and are illustrated on the accompanying maps. Each scenario has advantages and disadvantages. After your review of the information presented, we invite you to complete a brief online survey ( regarding your preferences on the alternative scenarios. Scenario 1 In this business as usual scenario, no new traffic calming features will be implemented within Uptown West. However, through other programs and initiatives, several changes to the transportation network are anticipated. The Region s LRT project will introduce LRT on Caroline Street between Erb Street and Allen Street. The City s Transportation Master Plan identified future bike routes on Avondale Avenue, William Street and Allen Street, as well as Westmount Road, Erb Street, Park Street (south of Allen Street) and Caroline Street (between William Street and Allen Street). The City also has a sidewalk program that looks to provide sidewalks where there are missing connections based on city wide priorities. Scenario 2 This scenario endeavours to calm traffic and discourage infiltration in the following manner: From Westmount Road to Erb Street: Right turn restrictions on Westmount Road during the peak period at the intersections of Dawson Street, Dietz Avenue and Norman Street From Erb Street: Right turn restrictions on Erb Street during the peak period at Dietz Avenue, Beverly Street, Dunbar Road, and Avondale Avenue Raised crosswalk and raised intersection on Roslin Avenue Diverter at Euclid Avenue/Alexandra Avenue Raised median islands or speed cushions on Father David Bauer Drive North south through traffic: Raised crosswalk and raised intersection on Roslin Avenue; road closure at Roslin Avenue/Allen Street/John Street One way segments on Dunbar Road and Avondale Road East west through traffic Diverter, one way segment and raised intersection on Alexandra Avenue One way segments on Norman Street; right turn restriction on Westmount Road at Norman Street Intersection median on Park Street at Allen Street; road closure at Roslin Avenue/Allen Street/John Street Diverter on John Street at Belmont Avenue Scenario 3 This scenario endeavours to calm traffic and discourage infiltration in the following manner: From Westmount Road to Erb Street: Diverter at Dawson Street at Dietz Avenue Right turn restrictions during the peak period from Beverly Street on to Erb Street and from Roslin Avenue on to Erb Street Raised crosswalk on Lourdes Street at Dietz Avenue April 28, 2014

The program once developed will seek to prioritize locations on a City wide basis. Measure: Signed on road bike routes Location: Avondale Avenue; William Street; Allen Street; Westmount Road; Erb Street; Park Street (south of Allen Street); Caroline Street (between William Street and Allen Street) Rationale: Encourage active transportation; Signage to raise driver awareness The location of these on road bike routes were presented in the City s Transportation Master Plan (approved in 2011). Note: Example photos are shown for illustration purposes only. Details of each measure are site specific and will be determined during the detailed design phase. Scenario 1 Advantages and Disadvantages Criteria Advantages Disadvantages Community No new impediments to local access. Residents have greatest choice in how to access/egress from neighbourhood. Existing character of streets are maintained. No new opportunities to enhance community space. Traffic Operations Infiltration Safety Cost No detrimental impacts to any other streets or locations within the neighbourhood resulting from calming measures. No impact to emergency response times. Grid street network disperses traffic. No detrimental impacts to any street from traffic calming measures on another street. Provides signed bike routes (as per City s Transportation Master Plan) which raises driver awareness of cyclists on road. Provides sidewalks where currently missing (as per City s sidewalk program). No additional costs. (On road bike routes and sidewalks are part of other City programs.) No impacts to operational costs of snow clearing, garbage and recycling collection. No new measures that may impact traffic speeds. No new measures in place to discourage potential for infiltration. Does not address identified speeding issues at select locations in the neighbourhood (i.e. Roslin Avenue near school). Does not address identified collision issues at Park Street / Allen Street.

Measures to discourage infiltration include: turning restrictions on Westmount Road turning restrictions on Erb Street diverters raised crosswalk raised intersection median islands (or speed cushions) one way segments road closure intersection median island Reduces traffic speeds near school with raised crosswalk and raised intersection. Addresses collision issues at Park Street / Allen Street with intersection median island that eliminates some conflicting turn movements. Improves safety at Roslin Avenue / Allen Street / John Street with closure that eliminates conflicting turn movements. Reduces conflicting movements on one way streets (i.e. no opposing traffic). Raises driver awareness and encourages active transportation with on road bike routes and appropriate signage. Improves conditions for pedestrians by providing additional sidewalks (as per City s sidewalk program) where currently missing. circuitous routes for emergency response vehicles. An increase in traffic volumes may result on some street segments due to circuitous routes made by other neighbourhood residents. An increase in traffic speeds may result on oneway street segments or those without implemented measures. Turn restrictions along Westmount Road and Erb Street will also impact neighbourhood residents returning home and patrons of Erb Street Mennonite Church. Residents on one way streets and near diverters will have limited route choice for access / egress. Turn restrictions to or from Regional roads (i.e. Westmount Road and Erb Street) will need approval from Region of Waterloo. An increase in traffic volumes may result on Roslin Avenue across school frontage as access to school must be maintained. An increase in traffic speeds may result on oneway streets due to reduced friction. Stop control and clear signage (one way and do not enter) needed to alert drivers approaching one way streets. Non compliance on one way street segments may occur. Non compliance for turning restrictions may occur. Significant cost to implement. Increases snow clearing, garbage and recycling collection costs due to additional time required for one way street segments (requiring looping around to access both sides of the street). If used to help control speeds on longer one way streets, then portable pinch points will require maintenance and winter storage. Permanent pinch points will have a higher installation cost.

Encourages lower speeds on Dunbar Road and Norman Street by strategically creating pinch points (mobile planters or similar or mid block curb extensions). circuitous routes for emergency response vehicles. An increase in traffic volumes may result on some street segments due to circuitous routes made by other neighbourhood residents. An increase in traffic speeds may result on oneway street segments or those without implemented measures. Higher traffic volumes may result on Roslin Avenue as parallel streets (Dunbar Road, Avondale Avenue, Menno Street, and Euclid Avenue) have measures that discourage access. Infiltration Measures to discourage infiltration include: turning restrictions on to Erb diverters raised crosswalks raised intersection pinch points median islands (or speed cushions) one way segments traffic circle road closure intersection median island Turn restrictions from Beverly Street on to Erb Street and from Roslin Avenue on to Erb Street will also impact residents exiting the neighbourhood. Residents on one way streets and near diverters will have limited route choice for access / egress. Traffic travelling on Westmount Road and Erb Street can still access the neighbourhood from various locations. Turn restrictions to or from Regional roads (i.e. Erb Street) will need approval from Region of Waterloo.
