New traffic changes on Dundas Place this summer

Earlier this spring, City Council lowered the speed limit on Dundas Place, between Ridout to Wellington streets, to 20 kilometres per hour. The lower speed limit of these four blocks helps to support the patio experience in the area, creates a safer environment for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as the events and activities that will continue to happen regularly along Dundas Place and in Market Lane. 

The City is also adding new, temporary centerline signage at the Ridout, Richmond, and Wellington Street entrances to Dundas Place. This signage will not restrict vehicle access, but will help slow traffic down to reinforce Dundas Place as a special destination shared by pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.

City staff will be evaluating traffic management options for Dundas Place and will be collecting feedback from businesses, residents, and visitors later this summer. Options for the future traffic management of Dundas Place will be presented to City Council in the fall.
