SUMMARY

 

Phase 1 of the Patrick Avenue/Gading Road Complete Street Project (Project), located on Patrick Avenue between Tennyson Road and Gading Road, was approved by Council on October 12, 2021 and, after an extensive, year-long community engagement, was successfully implemented during the Fall of 2021. The improvements included a road diet transforming the existing four-lane roadway into a three-lane roadway to enhance traffic calming measures. Additionally, Class II buffered bike lanes, green pavement conflict areas for bike lanes, high-visibility crosswalk markings, and rapid flashing beacons at three uncontrolled school crosswalks were implemented to enhance safety for both pedestrians and cyclists.

 

The Transportation Division would like to begin Phase 2 of the Project, located on Gading Road between Patrick Avenue and Harder Road. This stage will consist of similar improvements implemented during Phase 1 to ensure a seamless consistency across the entire corridor. Once Phase 2 is complete, the Project will provide additional safety, better access, and mobility benefits for all modes of traffic.
