Travel Delay Monitoring on Large Highway and Pipeline Projects
The presentation will explore ATS Traffic’s experience with travel delay monitoring on large highway work zones and pipeline projects. This will include a brief slide presentation on an existing project, a summary of its scope, operations, process, and conclusions, followed by a live demo of our dashboard-solution.
About the presenter: Saad Ahmed is a member of ATS Traffic’s IntelliTrafik Divisions and a Project Managers on the Trans Mountain Expansion Project. He has been working as part of ATS Traffic’s extensive involvement with the project for over two years.
Highway 91/17 Upgrade
The Highway 91/17 and Deltaport Way Upgrade Project is a combination of improvements to existing Highway 91, Highway 17, Highway 91 Connector and Deltaport Way to improve travel safety and efficiency. Improved efficiency decreases travel time Delta for both the travelling public and for goods movers, thereby supporting community and economic development.
In this presentation, we’ll share McElhanney’s proposed design that prioritized safety and comfort for all road users, while achieving the project’s objectives of developing a sustainable design that preserved important bog and wetland functions, protected habitat and promoted stormwater treatment, improving travel time, safety, and economic growth.
Furthermore, we’ll review how McElhanney rose to the province’s challenge for innovation through the Design-Build process by developing a pragmatic “one-way-couplet roadway-system” configuration, while retaining the existing bridge and two-lane loop ramp for the Highway 91/91C Interchange, providing for environmentally sustainable design.

Putting Pedestrians and Cyclists First: The Case for Protected Intersections
Signalized intersections have traditionally been built to manage the movement of car traffic, with some concessions provided to pedestrians and cyclists. Over time these intersections have become bigger and bigger and have consequently become less inviting for people walking. Rather than enablers of active transportation, large intersections have become barriers to walking and cycling.
But the tides are shifting: many communities in Canada are finding success in improving conditions for pedestrians and cyclists with “protected intersections”. Matt’s presentation will overview the key features of this design and share some of the research that has informed their effectiveness.
About the presenter: Matt Pinder is a transportation engineer with WSP and an emerging expert in the planning and design of streets that balance the needs of all road users. In 2022, Matt was recognized as the TAC Young Transportation Professional of the Year.
