Concerns about traffic volumes on Totten Street dating back to 2006 are being addressed by the City of Windsor.

City administrators have conducted a traffic calming study of the West Windsor street between Northway and Campbell and have determined that no physical traffic calming measures are necessary.

The study looked at traffic conditions including speed, traffic volume, the number of collisions, the presence of cycling facilities, residential frontage and the presence of pedestrian features in the area.

Using a standard scoring system, the City says the study determined that a the stretch of Totten between Partington and Dominion warranted traffic calming in the form of radar speed signs to tell drivers “MAXIMUM 50 kmph – SLOW DOWN”.

At an open house back in November, the City communicated the proposed solution to area residents but only 2% of residents along the studied route agreed with installing the proposed traffic calming measure. The City says that due to lack of support from local residents, they do not recommend implementing traffic calming. The matter is set to be discussed today at the City’s Transportation Standing Committee.
