Notice something “new” downtown?
The speed limit in the commercial business district has decreased to 30km/h as part of the sidewalk seating and retail area extension project.
With appropriate permits, this summer businesses can expand their sidewalk seating or retail displays by using the parking lane in front of their business. The speed limit was reduced to ensure pedestrian safety and space for physical distancing.
It will reverted back to 50km/h in mid-October when the project is over for the season.
