Traffic Calming Curbs: Making Roads Safer in Calgary

December 17, 2019

The City of Calgary developed traffic calming curbs (TC Curbs) as a quick, low-cost way to calm traffic. While conventional traffic calming approaches can be costly and take months to construct, modular TC Curbs are made from pre‐cast concrete and can be installed in hours at about one-tenth the expense without impacting utilities or drainage.

This webinar provided more detail on TC Curbs and their effectiveness in Calgary. This program received TAC’s Road Safety Engineering Award in 2019.
