Thanks to all residents who participated in the public engagement for this project. Final traffic safety plans were presented to Council on September 17, 2019. The result of this project is a comprehensive traffic safety plan intended to address current and anticipated traffic concerns in Heritage Hills.
These final plans were chosen based on resident input from the Open House and Online Survey.
Strathcona County will continue to monitor traffic speed, volumes and operations in Heritage Hills after the new school opens to evaluate the effectiveness of the traffic safety plan.
