Canadian Municipalities Praise Davenport Road
The City of Waterloo's Davenport Road Multi-Use Corridor Improvement Project won a Sustainable Communities Transportation award from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. GSP Group, City of Waterloo staff and WalterFedy worked together on road upgrades which helped lower traffic speeds by reducing Davenport Road from four lanes to two, with dedicated turn lanes and landscaped islands. Once a barrier between two residential communities and adjacent commercial areas, Davenport Road now connects the communities and encourages active transportation by cyclists, pedestrians and wheelchair and transit users. The project introduced the first-ever bike box and bike lay-bys in Waterloo Region.
