Kenilworth trial closure at Sherwood/Fairmont

You are here

As part of the Sherwood Drive Traffic Calming Study, the City will be carrying out a trial closure of Kenilworth Street at Sherwood Drive/Fairmont Avenue. The trial closure will consist of a few concrete planter boxes. Cyclist and pedestrian access will be maintained.

The trial closure will give residents an opportunity to test out the potential benefits/impacts of a closure before anything permanent is recommended. City staff will also be collecting traffic data before and during the trial closure to assess secondary impacts, such as traffic volumes on nearby streets.

The trial closure is expected to begin June 21, and will be kept in place until late fall.
