Background information

To prepare for 2021 construction projects, the City is planning a comprehensive traffic management plan to address potential transportation impacts. This year's construction includes significant work on King Street downtown which will redirect traffic to other routes.

City Council has reached a decision on temporary traffic changes to Dundas Place during the 2021 construction season. Council has directed that traffic be reconfigured using a “traffic diversion” model, which involves blocking in-bound access at Ridout and Wellington Streets.

Motor vehicular traffic will continue to access Dundas Place from the intersections with Talbot Street and Clarence Street. Vehicles on Dundas Place will be able to travel both directions and be able to exit Dundas Place at all intersections (including Ridout and Wellington Streets).

This was deemed preferred over installing temporary bike lanes. Instead, safety is improved for cyclists through a decrease in through traffic.

Cyclists will continue to enter Dundas Place from all directions, including Ridout Street and Wellington Street, and will share the two general traffic lanes that are in place today.

These changes do not impact the on-street parking, loading zones or event planning. There would also be no impact to the implementation or capacity of patios.
