A study to review the vehicle, transit and pedestrian operations along Harwood Avenue and on the site of two collocated high schools with shared facilities. The two school boards expressed concerns for the safety of students at the vehicular entrances, as well as waiting times for vehicles entering and exiting the school during peak times.
  • 2010—Traffic Operations Analysis and Countermeasure Development (MTO).
