In 2015, a community traffic issue identified by the Westgate Community Association was selected for a traffic calming project. A number of drivers have been observed speeding in the school zone on 8 Avenue SW, there have been issues with drivers failing to yield to pedestrians at crosswalks in the study area, and safety concerns have been raised related to pick-up and drop-off activity at the two local schools.
Over the next year, City staff from the Community Traffic program will be working with the Westgate Community Association, the two area schools, and a small group of affected residents to develop a traffic calming plan to address these concerns. This plan will be presented to the community for review prior to any construction in the area.
