Transportation Master Plan Update and Survey

Project Details

The Town of Strathmore is updating our Transportation Master Plan (TMP). The updated TMP will provide a framework for Council and Administration to assess the capability of the road network, to accommodate new development and is useful in short- and long-term planning and budgeting.

Project Objectives

As part of the TMP update, the latest land use data, annexation areas and relevant planning and transportation policies will be reviewed and considered for inclusion, where appropriate.

The updated TMP will:

  • Develop a long-term travel demand model
  • Evaluate the impacts of the proposed HWY1 bypass and its timing
  • Review roadway cross-section standards
  • Determine future road network and traffic control infrastructure
  • Prepare the concept plan for the Town’s ring road
  • Assess the capability of the Town’s existing road network and recommend road infrastructure upgrades or construction to accommodate new development in the short-term, and at 10, 20, and 30 year horizons.
  • Incorporate Trails Master Plan into TMP
  • Provide order-of-magnitude cost estimates for road upgrades for updating Town’s transportation levies
