Traffic Calming

Traffic calming systems, commonly seen as speed bumps or traffic circles, are devices used on local streets and lane ways to help reduce the speed of motorists through neighbourhoods. To meet the demands for these devices, the District of Mission has established a policy to address requests for traffic calming devices on residential streets.

STR.32 Neighbourhood Traffic Calming Policy.

Traffic Signals

There are three basic types of traffic signals utilized throughout the District of Mission:

Fully Activated Signals

These are the standard traffic signals, found at: London Avenue & access to Junction Mall, 7th & Hurd, 7th & Grand, 14th & Cedar, and 11th & Stave Lake. The traffic signals along Highways # 7 & 11 are operated and maintained by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

Pedestrian Activated Signals

These are where the main or through street has a flashing green light until a pedestrian activates the signal. The signal then progresses through a normal green, yellow and red cycle, which allows the pedestrian to cross the street and then it returns to flashing green. Pedestrian activated signals are found at: Hurd & Scott, 7th & Strachan, Murray & 3rd, Cedar Connector & Access to 11-Lougheed Mall.

Flashing Yellow and Red Signals

These are to alert the motorist to an approaching stop sign (for flashing red) and caution (for flashing yellow) intersection. Two intersections have flashing signals: 7th & Cedar and 7th & Stave Lake. The installation of traffic signals is determined by established guidelines called warrants. Traffic warrants take into consideration a variety of issues to establish if a traffic signal is required. Traffic warrants take into consider such things as traffic volumes, pedestrian volumes, number of left or right turn movements, etc.

Traffic Signs

The District annually spends $60,000 a year installing new signage and replacing old faded or obsolete signs. Regrettably, an additional $50,000 is spent annually to replace damaged or stolen signs. If you see a damaged or missing sign, please report it immediately using the phone number shown on this page, except where the sign is along either Provincial Highways #7 & 11.

Road Markings

The District uses a variety of road markings to delineate travel lanes, turn lanes, traffic islands, speed humps, etc. The installation of signs and the placement of road markings are determined by established guidelines called warrants. Traffic warrants take into consideration a variety of issues to establish if a sign or road marking is warranted.
