Multi Modal Transportation Study

Overview

ISL Engineering was retained to conduct a Multi Modal Transportation Study for Devon. The focus of the study was to review all modes of transportation including roadways, pathways, sidewalks, crosswalks, pedestrians, vehicles and bicycles to look at improvements that would benefit the entire community including:  future traffic needs, downtown parking requirements, bike routes, pedestrian routes, intersection improvements and traffic speed zone reductions.  

The report is summarized in the Power Point that was presented to council on August 12, 2013: Multi Modal Transportation Presentation

In the 2014 Capital Budget the following projects are approved by Council:

  • Install a four-way stop at the Miquelon Avenue and Erie Street South intersection with dedicated east bound right hand turning lane.
  • Install a solar crosswalk at Erie Street South and St. Lawrence Avenue
  • Install a four-way stop at the Michigan and Miquelon intersection
  • Install 4 minor solar pedestrian crossings – ISL Engineering is studying locations; more information will be provided for future discussion.
  • Preliminary design for highway intersections at St. Lawrence Avenue/Highway 60 and Miquelon Avenue/Highway 60
  • Birchwood 30km/hour pilot project
  • Construct curb extensions between buses for crosswalks at Riverview Middle School as recommended by ISL Engineering – preliminary design phase in 2014
