Traffic safety review initiated for Heritage Hills

Strathcona County has initiated a Community Traffic Safety Review for Heritage Hills to address vehicle speed and pedestrian safety in the neighbourhood. Residents are invited to provide feedback on traffic and safety concerns at a workshop on March 21.

Many of the main roads through Heritage Hills are nearing time for scheduled rehabilitation. The timing provides an opportunity to consider actions to address neighbourhood traffic concerns, including potential safety issues resulting from the traffic impact of the new school under construction on Heritage Drive.

Project outcomes could include:

  • curb extensions and/or flashing beacons to pedestrian crossing points
  • adjusted speed limits
  • physical traffic calming measures, such as speed bumps
  • changes in intersection control, such as stop signs becoming roundabouts
  • no changes

The workshop is an opportunity for residents to provide input and identify their priorities.

Thursday, March 21
Drop in: 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Broadmoor Public Golf Course Clubhouse
2100 Oak Street
Sherwood Park

If residents are unable to attend the workshop, they can alternatively complete a public survey available online from March 22 to April 4.

Findings from the workshop and survey will be used to inform the development of preliminary traffic safety recommendations for Heritage Hills which will be presented to residents for further feedback in spring 2019.
