The Neighbourhood Traffic Calming (NTC) Program focuses on addressing requests for permanent engineered traffic calming on existing local and collector streets within neighbourhoods. This Program is reserved for streets that cannot benefit from roadway modifications through other City Programs. The NTC program has a prioritization list and qualification process for streets that is done city wide. As such, it may take years once roads have been approved for traffic calming for measures to be implemented. This is not the Temporary Traffic Calming program which is done by the ward office and for which we have been soliciting feedback.
Current NTC project in Ward 18:
Haig Drive from Smyth Road to Kilborn Avenue
- Recommendations will be finalized this spring and consultations will occur with residents
- We are approximately 2 years away from seeing measures implemented
- Information on this project can be found here: https://ottawa.ca/en/city-hall/public-engagement/projects/haig-drive-traffic-calming-study
Other streets in ward 18 being reviewed for measures (priority is based on city wide need):
Note this is an ever-evolving list, so new projects may come up that take priority.
