Transportation Master Plan

City of Camrose Transportation Master Plan (TMP) Project

What is the Transportation Master Plan?
The TMP is an extensive report that includes a review of the City’s transportation system. Generally, the TMP will suggest solutions on issues such as anticipated alignment of future arterial roadways, protection of future road rights-of-way, upgrading of existing roadways to improve traffic flow and safety, and requirements for access controls.

As part of the TMP update, some past issues are being considered again. The consultant will be reviewing other issues such as the: 
  • current and/or hypothetical traffic calming measures that have been used or that could be used by the City in the future
  • current status of public transportation within the City and providing recommendations for the City to consider
  • practices used in other jurisdictions across Alberta to identify any changes that could be adopted by the City of Camrose
Why is this TMP update happening?
The most recent update to the Transportation Master Plan was completed in 2007. The provincial government suggests that transportation plans be updated every 5 years to remain current and responsive to change. The City uses the information generated in a TMP to plan for future decisions and allocate resources for current issues regarding the transportation modes and infrastructure.

How long will the TMP take?
The project was awarded to WSP Canada / MMM Group in January 2016 and initial public consultation was completed in an open house on May 26, 2016. Initial findings are expected to be presented to the City of Camrose in mid-June 2016 with another opportunity for public involvement in consultation events by early to mid-September 2016. The TMP is expected to be completed in Early November 2016.

The presentation slides used in the May 26, 2016 open house are available here.
