Hamlet Entry Traffic Calming Welcome and Cold Springs Pilot Projects

Posted on Tuesday May 16, 2017

Building on recommendations included in the County of Northumberland’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP), the County is developing a standardized approach to traffic calming at locations where speeding issues exist on County roadways at the “entries” to hamlets and other rural communities. The proposed approach will focus on gateway treatments to be located at the speed zone transitions. The gateway treatments will combine a number of traffic calming measures, which may include lane narrowing, enhanced signage and pavement markings.

To evaluate its effectiveness, the proposed traffic calming approach will be implemented at two pilot project locations in 2017. The pilot project locations will include the implementation of traffic calming gateway treatments on:

  • County Roads 2, 10 and 74 entering the community of Welcome in the Municipality of Port Hope
  • County Road 18 entering the community of Cold Springs in the Township of Hamilton

A Public Information Meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 31st 2017, from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm in Council Chambers at the County of Northumberland Headquarters Building located at 555 Courthouse Road, Cobourg. Background information and preliminary drawings will be available for viewing and County Staff will be on hand to answer questions and receive feedback.
