Lennox Drive Traffic Calming
Residents of Lennox Drive have engaged with the City over concerns surrounding vehicle speeds and volumes on the roadway connecting St. Albert Trail to Dawson Road. In 2018, the City worked through the Traffic-Calming process with residents in the area to review traffic-related concerns and investigate opportunities to enhance safety.
Your Neighbourhood – Your Road – Your Voice
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Lennox Drive Traffic Calming Priorities Survey, Information Session, Study Area Walking Tour and Conceptual Design Preferences Survey in 2018. As a result of the information and feedback received, the City better understands resident challenges related to traffic safety in and around Lennox Drive and insight on preferences for potential solutions and in association with their consultant, Stantec, has developed a list of measures to be installed on Lennox Drive.
Installation of temporary traffic calming measures: Spring 2019
Due to the lateness in the season, some of the temporary traffic calming measure installations on the roadway itself were deferred until 2019 and will be installed once the City has completed its spring clean up and sweeping of the roadways. Once installed, they will be evaluated to determine the effectiveness and gather resident opinion for a minimum one-year period.
- Measures that have been installed as of March 2019:
- Road markings to create “through and left turn only” and “right turn only” lanes were installed for westbound traffic on Lennox Drive at Liberton Drive, and a yellow centre line was installed for the length of Lennox Drive from St Albert Trail to Dawson Road.
- Measures that were outside of the roadway were installed over the winter months, including:
- Rapid Flashing Beacons at two crosswalk locations (Langholm Dr and Liberton Dr)
- Oversized “stop” signs at Liberton Drive
- “Stop ahead” signs on Liberton Drive
- Driver feedback signs (radar signs)
- During early 2019, City Council approved the reduction in speed in the Lacombe Park East neighbourhood from 50 km/h to 40 km/h and these speed limit signs were posted and became effective starting in March 2019.
