Todd Road Pedestrian Upgrades


The City is upgrading Todd Road from Klahanie Drive to Ronde Lane. The upgrades are driven by the need for improved pedestrian and motorist safety along this corridor. BA Dawson started construction in May 2019. Completion is targeted for Fall 2019.

In February 2016, the City hosted a public information session with Barnhartvale residents to provide an update on the proposed Todd Road Pedestrian Upgrade Project and to present a proposed design. The information session was well attended, and many valuable comments, suggestions, and concerns were received and taken into consideration during the 2017–2018 design phase of the project.

In February 2016, the City hosted a public information session with Barnhartvale residents to provide an update on the proposed Todd Road Pedestrian Upgrade Project and to present a proposed design. The information session was well attended, and many valuable comments, suggestions, and concerns were received and taken into consideration during the 2017–2018 design phase of the project.

The following challenges and constraints regarding this section of Todd Road were also taken into account during the detailed design process:

  • fixed road right-of-way width
  • existing driveway accesses and steep grades
  • retaining the rural community feel

The resulting project design includes the following improvements:

  • Constructing a raised concrete sidewalk on the uphill side of Todd Road will improve pedestrian safety. By constructing the sidewalk on the uphill side of the road, there will be significantly fewer impacts on properties and access. Please note: residents are required to maintain sidewalks adjacent to their property to ensure that they are free of accumulated snow and ice.
  • Installing concrete curbing on the downhill side of Todd Road to assist in diverting water away from down-slope driveways. In order to accommodate the raised concrete sidewalk and curbing, current on-street parking will be impacted, both during construction and once the improvements are complete.
  • Installing a piped drainage system will provide better storm water management during rainfall and snow melt.
  • Maintaining intersection widths in steeper areas of the corridor to accommodate residents’ access concerns.
  • installing a crosswalk on Todd Road at Ronde Lane.
  • Improving bus stops.
  • Repaving the road.
  • Installing additional lighting, where possible.
  • Installing retaining walls, where required.

A temporary outbound bus stop and a temporary inbound bus stop is located on lower Lamar Drive near Todd Road. The existing stop just off Todd Road at upper Lamar Drive is for inbound passengers only.

    We apologize for the inconvenience to Barnhartvale transit users. Due to limited road width and the location of the water main and storm services on Todd Road, there is minimal or no room for buses to travel through certain sections of the active construction zone, resulting in necessary temporary rerouting or reduced service.
