Mansfield Avenue Sidepath and Traffic Calming Project

The Department of Public Works is developing the design of the Mansfield Avenue Sidepath and Traffic Calming project. The sidepath will replace the existing path on the eastern side of Mansfield Avenue from Colchester Avenue to North Street with a wider asphalt path and markings. The project will also include crossing improvements at major intersections. Traffic calming treatments are also being developed and are in the conceptual phase. The sidepath and traffic calming designs are being progressed simultaneously and will be constructed during the 2022 construction season. 

The City held a Public Meeting for the Mansfield Avenue neighborhood in June 2021, to present the traffic calming design options and solicit neighborhood feedback. Follow the links below to view a recording of this presentation, the PowerPoint presentation, and the traffic calming alternative drawings.

A public meeting to present the Sidepath design was hosted in December 2019. Please follow the link below to view the meeting notes.

Next Steps:

The City administered a survey to obtain a better understanding of the neighborhood's preferred alternative for traffic calming. Feedback indicated overwhelming support for traffic calming, with preferences evenly split between the concept for raised crosswalks or a series of chicanes.

Construction of three raised crosswalks will be coordinated with construction of the new sidepath in place of the sidewalk on the east side of Mansfield Avenue. Data collection to measure the impact of traffic calming will occur in 2023.
