Grandin Traffic Calming
The traffic calming measures in the Grandin neighbourhood at the Grosvenor Boulevard and Grenfell Avenue intersection, have been in place since fall 2017. The City of St. Albert is now undertaking an evaluation to determine how effective the changes have been in influencing traffic safety, the impacts to city services (Public Works, Transit, EMS) and to gather resident feedback on the redesign of the intersection.
Traffic calming measures are installed first on a temporary basis and evaluated after they have been in place for one year, to give area motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, and City operations staff an opportunity to experience/evaluate how they perform in all four of our seasons.
The design, which includes curb extensions and pedestrian crossing flashing beacons, was installed to address reported traffic safety concerns from residents, which included:
- Pedestrian safety (drivers yielding to pedestrians)
- Vehicle speeds
- Intersection control and safe turning movements
A public open house was held on June 19, 2019 at the Grandin Clubhouse, 5 Grenfell Ave, between 6:00pm and 8:00pm to receive feedback from residents on the installations installed in 2017 and inform design of the intersection treatment going forward.
