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.

City Council met on May 25th and approved the Traffic Calming Policy and the Phase 1 Pilot Neighbourhood Traffic Calming Study Plans which included five sites across the City. The City has initiated the Phase 2 Pilot Neighbourhood Traffic Calming Studies in three additional areas:

  • High Street between Sherbrooke Street and Chamberlain Street
  • Highland Road between Fairbairn Street and Chemong Road
  • Whitefield Drive/Golfview Road/Silverdale Road
