Traffic & Transportation Planning
Infrastructure Planning staff plan and design the City’s roadway system to best serve the public’s current and future transportation needs.
Staff continually monitor and analyze travel patterns in the city. Data is gathered and used to refine the city’s transportation model, which forecasts traffic volumes for use in identifying future road network needs and assessing various transportation projects and development proposals.
City staff are currently working with local and regional partners to update the model and plan for travel needs to 2030. A 20-year major road servicing plan which identifies and prioritizes network needs, and the associated funding mechanisms, is managed and updated every five years. Section staff also periodically monitor parking activity within the urban areas of the City and parking management plans are developed and updated to ensure that the supply of public parking is carefully balanced with the demand.
