Speed cushions are one of many tactics used in the City of Barrie’s approach to traffic calming. Traffic-calmed streets are intended to improve residents’ quality of life and increase safety for active transportation users.
The city has created an online map for residents to suggest locations in the city where they would like to see a speed cushion in 2021.
The city encourages residents to review this easy to use map to submit a new location, or “like” a location already submitted.
The city will collect resident feedback through the map until November 13, 2020. Feedback collected through the new online map will be shared with Barrie City Council in early 2021, to help councillors determine where speed cushions should be placed in each ward.
