Dundas Place Traffic Changes

Background

One of our goals heading into the construction season this year was to improve safety for cyclists traveling through downtown, while maintaining access to local businesses for people traveling by car.

In early May 2021, the City made temporary changes to traffic operations on Dundas Place (the flex street portion of Dundas Street between Ridout Street and Wellington Street), to limit the volume of motor vehicle through-traffic and increase safety and mobility for all road users.

In this new arrangement, motor vehicles are restricted from entering Dundas Place at Ridout Street or Wellington Street. Instead, they have access to Dundas Place from Talbot, Richmond, and Clarence Streets to reach their destination. Vehicles are still able to exit Dundas Place at Ridout and Wellington Streets. The image below illustrates how this works.

Safety for vulnerable road users remains a priority, as well as supporting access to local businesses, and we’re thinking ahead to what comes next for traffic operations on Dundas Place. To help shape these plans, please complete the brief feedback form below.
