The City has completed a traffic study to evaluate the feasibility of closing parts of Wellington Crescent to vehicles. The idea of closing parts of Wellington Crescent to vehicles was raised at the stakeholder meeting in spring 2019 as a possible solution warranting further investigation, and discussed at the adjacent property owner meeting.

Closing parts of Wellington Crescent was investigated because it may eliminate the need to relocate significant sections of Wellington Crescent, reduce riverbank stabilization costs, reduce traffic volumes and noise along the route, reduce tree removal, and provide enhanced cycling and pedestrian opportunities along the riverbank.

On June 1, 2020, the City hosted a meeting to follow-up with stakeholders and adjacent property owners to share the results of the traffic study. Due to the drawbacks identified in the traffic study, the City will not be pursuing a partial closure to Wellington Crescent or a retaining wall, and has updated the recommended design based on feedback from the spring 2019 meetings. For more information on the updated design, please visit the Project Design tab. To view the June 1, 2020 presentation, please visit the Document Library.
