  • Project Background

  • Project Background

    There are two components to the Main Street Project: 1. Infrastructure Renewal – which will see new municipal services installed in 2018; 2. Streetscape Concepts – which was developed in coordination with the Lambeth Community Improvement Plan, parts of which will be incorporated into the restoration works for the 2018 construction project.

    Streetscape Objectives

    Main Street’s primary function is to foster...

  • Design Principles & Approach

  • Design Principles

    1. Establish a vision, development tools and implementation strategies incorporating great street principles 2. Develop a comprehensive complete street over long term implementation 3. Renew infrastructure and servicing 4. Provide pedestrian accessibility, comfort and amenity 5. Reinforce the neighbourhood characteristics 6. Enhance connectivity and establish a neighbourhood destination 7. Stimulate placemaking opportunities and civic pride

  • Gateway features at Colonel Talbot Road and Campbell Street establish a strong sense of place along Main Street.

    Potential Gateway features include: • Community space for free events and activities • Public art • Activated corner uses • Improved sight lines through plaza • Enhanced lighting in the plaza

    Streetscape Right Sizing Exercise

  • Streetscape Concepts

  • Lane Configuration: Existing Conditions & Opportunities

    • Between 2012 and 2016 daily through traffic volumes on Main Street decreased by 19% • The two signalized intersections operate below their theoretical capacities during the AM and PM peak hours • The reduction in traffic demand presented an opportunity to reconfigure the cross-section (conducting a “Road

    Diet”) to free-up real estate for other uses

    Signalized Intersection

  • Lane Configuration: Analysis of 3-Lane Configuration

    • A 3-lane cross-section is recommended (one through lane per direction and a centre two-way left-turn lane)

    • The 3-lane cross-section will maintain access to the properties along Main Street, while keeping through traffic moving

    • Dedicated left-turn lanes at both signalized intersections are recommended

    • Analysis of the 3-Lane cross section at the signalized intersections indicated that the roadway geometry will operate below capacity in the present and the forecast future (2026)

    • Controlled pedestrian crossings midblock at the Bainard Street or Routledge Road intersections are recommended to improve connectivity and safety
