The City worked with the Prince Charles Community in response to their expression of interest to look at the neighbourhood’s traffic challenges.
Example of Prince Charles curb extension
The Prince Charles neighbourhood is in northwest Edmonton, south of Yellowhead Trail and north of 118 Avenue.
Where We Are
The Community Traffic Management Plan process in Prince Charles is complete.
City Council approved the Community Traffic Management recommendations presented to the Urban Planning Committee on April 5, 2017. Since then, significant progress has been made in the permanent construction of the Community Traffic Management Plan:
A traffic signal was installed at 122 Street and 118 Avenue in May 2018.
Curb extensions and left turn modifications were constructed on 124 Street with Neighbourhood Renewal in 2018.
The concrete barriers at 124 Street and 123 Avenue remain in place until permanent construction of the road closure occurs in 2019 with Neighbourhood Renewal.
About the Project
We heard concerns about speeding, high traffic volumes, and significant neighbourhood shortcutting from the Prince Charles Community.
In 2013, the City began working with the neighbourhood to verify traffic issues, and in 2014 City Council approved a Community Traffic Management Plan Pilot Process for the neighbourhood. In order to develop the plan, potential options were reviewed with a volunteer community traffic committee. In July 2015, trial traffic measures were installed and the trial was evaluated based on traffic data results and public feedback collected. The results of this evaluation informed the recommendation to make the trial measures permanent.
The City partnered with the community to understand the neighbourhood’s traffic concerns,explore potential solutions, and evaluate trial traffic measures.

Trial Community Traffic Management Plan (CTMP) Installation
The plan included:
Concrete mini barriers were placed across 124 Street to block motor vehicle access beyond 123 Avenue
Curb extensions on 124 Street at 119 Avenue and 120 Avenue
Curb extensions on 122 Street at 119 Avenue
In response to feedback received after the installation of the trial traffic measures, some modifications were made. Evaluation of the trial CTMP was based on traffic data results and public feedback. Monitoring of the trial phase traffic volume and speed data was completed in the Fall of 2015 and Spring 2016 to help assess the impact of the trial measures. Feedback was collected in a variety of ways between July 2015 and December 2016.
