Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on our Suter Brook Village Traffic Improvements. Construction information for this pilot project can be found at portmoody.ca/suterbrook.

In December 2018, we asked Suter Brook Village residents and business owners/operators to share their thoughts on issues related to pedestrian and traffic safety, traffic congestion, road and sidewalk maintenance, parking, loading zones, noise and traffic issues related to delivery vehicles, and noise related to late-night business operations. The City also hosted a walking tour of public spaces. View the consultation summary (394kb).

A report based on the feedback collected was submitted to Council in February 2019 and staff were directed to develop a recommended plan to improve pedestrian and traffic safety in the area. The plan was endorsed by the Transportation Committee (item 3.1) (42.5kb) in October 2019 and presented to Council (item 9.1) (725kb) in December 2019.

What's changing?

The first phase of this pilot project is anticipated for April 2021 and includes:

  1. designating two commercial loading zones on Morrissey Road; and
  2. changing Brew Street to one-way traffic.

These changes are designed to reduce potential conflicts between frequent pedestrian crossings and drivers searching for on-street parking. The one-way traffic pattern will direct traffic to underground parking access points and prevent drivers from performing illegal U-turns in an attempt to park in an open spot. The two commercial loading zones will eliminate five on-street parking spots but will provide safe parking and unloading locations for business deliveries, removing the need for double-parking or other illegal maneuvers. These improvements will be monitored before being considered as a permanent traffic change. There will be no changes to the loading zone or number of parking spots on Brew Street.
