Temporary Traffic Calming

 

What is temporary traffic calming (TTC)?

Temporary traffic calming are installed within communities to try and resolve community concerns. They’re generally installed from May to October, otherwise, it would interfere with winter maintance. Each Councillor is given a set budget of where they want to place TTC in their wards. TTC only includes temporary measures such as flex-stakes, delineators, and pavement markings.

Permanent measures such as speed bumps and other physical road modifications are not included as part of TTC. They would fall under the Neighbourhood Traffic Calming (NTC) program which is completely data driven.
