Transportation / Complete Streets : University Ave. Reconstruction, Windsor Heights

The City of Windsor Heights’ University Avenue Reconstruction project made use of traffic calming measures, converting from 4 lanes of traffic with a turn lane to two lanes of traffic with a turn lane, adding bump outs near pedestrian crossings, increasing access and prominence of mass transit stops, and installing wider sidewalks with capacity for both pedestrian and bicycle traffic.

The project additionally included street trees (another calming measure), stormwater best practices such as native plantings and bioretention cells, as well as benches and educational signs.
