Castleglenn Consultants Inc. was retained in 2007 to undertake a Master Traffic Study on behalf of the Town of Arnprior. The study was commenced to provide the Town of Arnprior Council with a strategic plan that would identify future infrastructure requirements associated with proposed residential, industrial, and commercial growth planned for the community. The identification of existing and future roadway/intersection improvements and their associated costs, would allow the Town of Arnprior to ensure a cohesive, affordable and organized approach to prioritizing future transportation initiatives. In addition, the Master Traffic Study assessed parking-related issues in the downtown core and investigated the potential need and triggers for additional public parking facilities.
This transportation evaluation focused on achieving the following objectives:
- Develop policy documents that would address future roadway right-of-way protection and outline traffic impact assessment requirements;
- Assess current parking characteristics (i.e. utilization and turn-over) in downtown Arnprior and the need and triggers for additional public off-street parking facilities;
- Identify future roadway infrastructure requirements and associated improvement costs for the 2015 and 2025 time horizons; and
- Address roadway network issues as identified by the municipality.
Traffic impact assessment, traffic operations analysis and review, infrastructure assessment intersection capacity analysis, policy recommendation, and downtown parking assessment.
