The City worked with the Prince Charles Community in response to their expression of interest to look at the neighbourhood’s traffic challenges.

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. A traffic signal will be installed when available, and construction of the other traffic measures will be coordinated with Neighbourhood Renewal beginning in 2018. The concrete barriers will remain in place until construction begins.

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.

Public Engagement

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.
