The City of Whitehorse is working together with the Kwanlin Dün First Nation to bring traffic calming improvements along McIntyre Drive. The purpose of this project is to reduce vehicular speeds and improve safety and comfort for all road users including pedestrians, cyclists, transit users, and drivers.

Background

Over the past number of years, residents of the McIntyre subdivision and citizens of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation have raised concerns about road safety and speeding along McIntyre Drive. Community concerns have centered on excessive speeding, poor lighting, unsafe pedestrian crossings, narrow and discontinuous sidewalks, near misses between pedestrians/cyclists and vehicles, and deteriorating infrastructure.

In 2020, the City worked together with the Kwanlin Dün First Nation to conduct planning work for the project. Now, the project is in the detailed design phase and communications and engagement with the broader McIntyre neighbourhood community. The proposed upgrades along the along the corridor include the following:

  • Asphalt resurfacing.
  • Cycle tracks.
  • Drainage.
  • Lighting.
  • Pavement markings and signage.
  • Pedestrian crossings.
  • Traffic calming: chicanes, curb extensions, raised intersections, raised pedestrian crossings, roadway narrowing.
  • Sidewalks.

The proposed upgrades will improve transportation accessibility, connectivity, equity, mobility, safety, and sustainability by:

  • Accessible pedestrian infrastructure to improve transportation mobility for people with disabilities.
  • Dedicated and protected uni-directional cycle tracks on both sides of McIntyre Drive.
  • Enhanced lighting.
  • Improved vehicular sightlines.
  • Improved pedestrian crossings.
  • New sidewalk on outer loop (west side) of McIntyre Drive. Sidewalks on both sides of McIntyre Drive.
  • Reduced pedestrian/cycling crossing distances.
  • Reduced vehicle speeds through traffic calming.
  • Separated sidewalks to separate pedestrians from cycling and vehicle traffic.
  • Upgraded street infrastructure: resurfacing, line painting, etc.

How to get involved:

  • Ask a question about the project.
