In April 2019, Town of Lincoln Council passed a resolution regarding truck safety in Lincoln. Traffic safety and speed reduction strategies are a high priority for the Town, and we continue to respond to residents' concerns about improving road safety throughout the community.
The Town’s Transportation Master Plan developed a comprehensive Traffic Calming Policy to guide the implementation process of traffic calming/speed reduction measures for the Town. The ultimate goal of these actions is to improve the livability of neighbourhoods for all users.
Staff will be providing regular updates to Council through the Committee of the Whole, currently on a quarterly basis.
Staff will continue to work closely with the Niagara Region, Niagara Regional Police Service, the Ministry of Transportation and other agencies on multi-stakeholder and multi-agency strategies to ensure improving traffic and truck safety remains a high priority in Lincoln.
The Town has implemented several traffic safety initiatives throughout Lincoln, including community safety zones, pedestrian crossovers, and speed humps. To read more about these initiatives, see below. Detailed maps of the traffic safety measures implemented in Ward 1, Ward 2, Ward 3, and Ward 4 are available in the Documents section on the right side of this page.
