Glen Allan road construction and traffic calming improvements underway this summer

Starting this week, residents can expect delays and detours as road improvements, sidewalk repairs and the implementation of traffic calming features will be underway in Glen Allan.

As part of the County’s annual residential road maintenance program, construction will take place on Glenbrook Boulevard and Georgian Way, from Glenbrook Boulevard to Granada Boulevard.

The rehabilitation of Glenbrook Boulevard includes reconstructing the raised intersections at both Galloway Drive and Gilmore Avenue with concrete to improve the slope and prevent uneven wear.

As part of the approved Glen Allan Traffic Calming Plan, pedestrian safety features and traffic calming measures will be added on Georgian Way from Glenbrook Boulevard to Granada Boulevard. This includes speed humps and raised crosswalks with curb extensions. Other construction in the area includes various drainage repairs at curb extensions.

Residents can expect delays and detours while construction is underway, including closures on Glenbrook Boulevard when the concrete ramps are being installed at each intersection. Construction will be ongoing until mid-August, weather permitting.

Construction zone reminders include:

  • For the safety of County staff and contractors, please be patient when driving through construction zones.
  • Slow down and always obey the speed limit.
  • Reduced speed limits are in effect even when workers are not present, as hazards may still exist.

Traffic calming measures have been underway in Glen Allan since 2010. All planned features will be implemented by the end of 2021 following the completion of Graham Road.

The Glen Allan Traffic Calming Plan was developed and approved following an extensive public engagement process.
