Project Overview

The City of Peterborough launched the “Calm Streets PTBO” initiative in 2020. Through this initiative, a new Traffic Calming Policy and Toolkit were developed to guide how City staff consider requests for traffic calming measures made by residents on Local Streets, Low Capacity Collectors, and High Capacity Collectors in residential neighbourhoods within Peterborough. The Traffic Calming project also resulted in a Toolkit (or menu) of solutions that the City will consider for use in Traffic Calming projects.

Phase 2

The City of Peterborough continues to address community concerns about traffic as it begins Phase 2 of Calm Streets PTBO, studying an additional three areas to establish potential traffic calming opportunities. The City is beginning studies on:

  • High Street between Lansdowne Street and Sherbrooke Street
  • Highland Road between Chemong Road and Fairbairn Street
  • Whitefield Drive, Golfview Road, and Silverdale Road

The City and its consultants will assess current conditions in each of the Phase 2 pilot study areas and apply the Neighbourhood Traffic Calming Policy to produce a Traffic Calming Plan. The Traffic Calming Plan will be informed by conversations and input from residents, business owners, and property owners in the study areas. Opportunities for feedback will include online questionnaires, community workshops, and outreach from the Calm Streets PTBO ambassador team.
