[ARCHIVED] Belle Haven traffic calming trial improvements coming soon

The original item was published from February 4, 2020 8:31 pm to April 26, 2020 3:00 pm

After months of working out the design details, the Belle Haven Traffic Calming Plan will start construction soon. Currently, the construction team is securing permits to ensure minimal impacts and safety measures are in place during construction. Staff expects permits to be issued in a few weeks so that construction can commence as soon as possible. Stay tuned to the city’s Belle Haven Traffic Calming Study project webpage for construction updates, as they become available.

The temporary improvements will be installed on Terminal Avenue, Chilco Street, Hamilton Avenue and Newbridge Street. These include:
  • Temporary bulb outs and crosswalks at key intersections on Terminal Avenue
  • Temporary bulb outs, bike routes (i.e., sharrows) and yellow center lines on Chilco Street from Hamilton Avenue to Newbridge Street
  • Temporary bulb outs, shoulder stripes and crosswalks at key intersections on Newbridge Street, between Chilco Street and Willow Road
  • Temporary gateways on Hamilton Avenue and on Newbridge Street near Carlton Avenue

For temporary bulb outs and gateways, residents can expect flexible posts and painted areas to outline the shape and size of these features. These cost effective materials will help create contrast for drivers and evaluate their design adequacy before permanent features are installed.

For additional information or to provide feedback, residents are encouraged to visit the Belle Haven Traffic Calming Study project webpage or contact Acting Senior Transportation Engineer Kevin Chen.
