John Street Neighbourhood - Traffic Calming

Over the last few years, the Town of Halton Hills undertook a number of studies to assess the need for traffic calming improvements for John Street. In 2018, the Town implemented non-intrusive traffic calming measures in the form of warning signs and pavement markings (Learn more). These additions did demonstrate an improvement in traffic speeds, however, it was evident that additional measures warranted consideration.

Residents are invited to review the proposed improvements listed below and share their comments.

Comments are also welcome at a Public Information Centre (PIC) to be held at the Halton Hills Public library located at 9 Church Street on November 21, 2019 at 6 p.m. for residents living in the neighbourhood and motorists that drive on the affected roads. The proposed Traffic Calming Plan will be available for comment and members of the study team will be available to answer any questions.

Phase II Proposed Improvements:

John Street

Speed humps are the most effective traffic calming measure.The proposed improvements for John Street are speed humps and signage in the form of: 

  • Two speed humps
  • Four speed hump signs
  • Two 'Traffic Calmed Neighbourhood' signs

River Drive

The proposed improvements for River Drive include speed humps, signage and road markings.  Implementing a yellow centre line divides the road into two equal lanes.  Implementing white edge lines reduces the road width to three metres. The yellow centre line and the white edge lines provide positive guidance for motorists and prevent them from carrying higher speeds.

  • One speed hump
  • One Collector road classification speed hump
  • Four speed hump signs
  • Two 'Traffic Calmed Neighbourhood' signs
  • Yellow centre line from Mountainview Road North to Rosetta Street
  • White edge lines from Mountainview Road North to Rosetta Street

Victoria Street

  • Yellow centre line from John Street to Metrolinx parking lot

Rosetta Street at River Drive

The white stop line advises motorists where they should stop and supports the stop sign.  The proposed yellow centre tail provides motorists with positive guidance when approaching an intersection.

  • White stop line
  • Yellow centre tail

St. Michaels Street

  • White stop line
  • Yellow centre tail

The Town wants your thoughts on these improvements.
