Council had expressed interest in reviewing the current traffic circulation and patterns in the area of Rennie’s River between Portugal Cove Road and King’s Bridge Road to determine if changes can be made to improve network connectivity and decrease the inconvenience to the public caused by the traffic restrictions in this area. 

In November 2017, a scope of work for the Rennie’s River East Traffic Pattern Review was adopted by Council. The scope identifies the areas of study that will be covered in this study including: area traffic restrictions; current restrictions which create circulation barriers; and, potential options for improvement. 

This study will also review the existing configuration of the King’s Bridge Road/Empire Avenue intersection to determine if alternative configurations may provide improved traffic operations and network connectivity.

The Rennie’s River East Traffic Pattern Review is expected to be complete in 2018.
