  • Will the RMOW be painting road lines?
    In-lay painting will be done by our roads crew following the paving of each area.
  • Will there be dust during the repaving work?
    The contractor will have a construction management plan approved prior to starting work that will include dust management.
  • Can the RMOW please add speed humps/bumps to reduce vehicle speed?
    Please see page 8 of the Traffic Calming Policy here for the application of speed humps/bumps
  • Will there be any new traffic calming measures implemented?
    The RMOW receives numerous inquiries about traffic calming and follows a Traffic Calming Policy  A considerable amount of data is considered before moving into a consultation phase on whether or not the majority of owners in the impacted area support the change. 
  • I have a traffic calming suggestion/request, what do I do?
    Please email
  • Can sidewalks be added to regulate pedestrian traffic?
    The introduction of sidewalks into residential areas, where the primary storm water conveyance is via ditches and where off road snowfall accumulation is a necessity, is a topic that extends beyond a traffic calming issue.
  • Can car counters be installed to learn about the volume of traffic?
    Related information is available on page 18-19 of the Traffic Calming Policy.
  • Can proper signs and road markings, such as clearly painting the road approaching three way stops, be added to prepare drivers for upcoming stop signs and clearly mark three way stops?
    Road signs and markings are determined by the Ministry of Transport Road Manual of Standard Traffic Signs & Pavement Markings. Bylaw Services enforces road sign infractions. Please report any violations you observe to Bylaw Services. The RCMP will also be notified to allow additional enforcement at this location.
  • Can raised “green asphalt” pedestrian cross walks be installed?
