Wabano Centre Traffic Impact Brief (Ottawa, ON)


Castleglenn Consultants Inc. was retained by Douglas Cardinal Architect Inc. to prepare a “Traffic Impact Brief” (TIB) that would address the transportation and traffic issues in relation to a proposed expansion of the existing Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health located on the north-west quadrant of Montreal Road / Bradley Avenue intersection.

The existing Wabano Centre consists of a single building with approximately 14,855 square feet (three floors containing approximately 4,950 Square feet each) for clinic space, cultural activity, and community use. The expansion site would result in a net increase of 29,575 square feet over the existing Wabano facilities (excluding space reserved for parking).

The proposed on-site parking will be accessible via an access located on the west side of Bradley Avenue approximately 40 m north of Montreal Road.  The 12,825 Square feet dedicated to parking is understood to replace and expand upon the existing on-site parking facilities (18 parking stalls) for a total of 20 underground/covered stalls.  The on-site parking facilities are understood to be reserved for employees of the Wabano Centre only.

The work involved Castleglenn undertaking traffic counts, traffic survey, and intersection capacity analysis of existing and forecast traffic volumes using simulation techniques.
