Upland Road Traffic Calming Project
Completed in 2012, the reconstruction of Upland Road from Raymond Street to Huron Avenue includes pedestrian safety improvements. These were developed through a community process which included two neighborhood meetings organized by the city and several meetings with individual property owners.
The improvements consist of constructing a curb extension at the intersection of Upland Road and Newell Street to reduce crossing distance for pedestrians crossing Upland Road and reduce speed of vehicles making a left turn at Newell Street. The construction of a curb extension on Huron Avenue at existing crosswalk at Upland Road was also included in this project.
