Proposed Truck Route: 75 Street between 90 Avenue and 98 Avenue
About the Project
In October 2011, City Council passed a motion to initiate a truck route designation on 75 Street between 90 Avenue and 98 Avenue. As part of this motion, the City is seeking feedback from affected residents and community stakeholders on possible impacts and mitigation strategies if this change were to take place.
The City’s long-term plans have identified 75 Street as a key corridor for goods movement for many years. This need was reaffirmed in The Way We Move, the City’s Transportation Master Plan, in 2009. However, planning studies have not been undertaken to determine the ultimate size, configuration or staging of the inner ring loop.
April 10, 2012 - Transportation Infrastructure Committee Deferred Decision
The recommendation went before the Transportation Infrastructure Committee of Council at City Hall. The decision on the designation of 75 St from 90 Ave to 98 Ave as a truck route has been deferred until a functional planning study is completed. Administration has now been directed to prepare a report on potential solutions for 99 St to mitigate the impact of truck traffic between Whyte Ave and Saskatchewan Dr, and direction has been given to complete a goods movement study before undertaking the functional planning study.
