Staff have previously reviewed this area, collecting traffic data in 2015 and 2016. The results of both studies indicated traffic calming measures were not warranted.
However, staff is in the process of creating a pavement marking plan to install a yellow centerline with a white parking line on the south side to help promote slower speeds. These markings should be installed in the fall.
This section of Ghent Avenue is currently scheduled for a minor reconstruction in 2019. Staff will determine if any traffic operational improvements such as lane width reductions or road narrowings can be included within the road works. Once the roadway has been finished, staff will re-review the traffic calming warrant to determine if any additional measures are required.
