Vision Zero can be achieved through safer and more livable streets in Edmonton. This safe systems approach combines engineering, education, engagement, enforcement, and evaluation to create safe, livable streets for everyone. Safe Mobility Engineering looks to build new streets or improve older ones.
Resources and tools to help teachers, students and parents learn about safety around schools.

As part of the City’s Vision Zero initiative, the City is launching the Towards 40 Program which targets low compliance and exception roads and is focused on improving safety in areas where speeding and safety issues have been identified.
To achieve safer streets for all residents, the Safe Crossings Program selects crossings in need of improvement and upgrades them using proven, effective and innovative tools. The program is expanding with approximately 400 crossing locations scheduled to be upgraded over the next four years from 2023-2026.
The City of Edmonton and the Edmonton Police Service work together with Edmonton’s school boards to encourage safe behaviours around schools using enforcement, road design and engineering, community activation and engagement, and more. This year, routes to 5 schools are being assessed and upgraded.
Vision Zero Street Labs create an opportunity to trial temporary traffic safety solutions on your streets by combining the expertise and power of Edmontonians and City of Edmonton staff to creatively address neighbourhood safety and livability concerns.
Each year, as part of Vision Zero, the Safe Mobility Engineering team selects locations for projects to use proven traffic calming measures to upgrade existing streets across the city.
This year, the City is introducing a new program to install speed humps or speed tables along priority corridors where there is a need to encourage safer speeds. Projects will be installed from 2023-2026. About 8 of those projects will be implemented in 2023.
Speed hump and speed table locations have been identified based on a number of different factors:
On select roads, speed humps and speed tables help to curb excessive traffic volume and risky speeds increasing community safety and livability for all.
Safety is the City’s priority. We want to improve safety while maintaining equitable access to the River Valley. Adaptable safety measures, speed humps and no parking zones are being explored for installation this summer.
Wolf Willow residents were provided with the opportunity to share their insights on proposed solutions. A What We Heard report, sharing those insights, is available at Engaged Edmonton.
After reviewing the public feedback, in which the majority of respondents expressed comfort with the proposed safety measures, the City has decided to move forward with the installation of permanent speed humps and adaptable curb extensions. These measures address speeding and crosswalk safety, both of which were highlighted as concerns by respondents in the online survey.
Adaptable traffic calming measures used in Vision Zero programs are an opportunity to learn how we can work together to improve safety and livability. Most of the adaptable traffic safety measures across the city remain in place for the cold season.
During the winter months, snow accumulating on top of and inside of adaptable traffic calming measures does not pose any safety risks to road users, and we expect the measures to continue to work as intended. Placement of some measures may be adjusted to reduce impacts of snow and ice. Site inspections over the winter will verify the effectiveness of the placement of the adaptable measures.
If any issues are experienced regarding snow clearing around adaptable traffic measures, we encourage residents to contact 311. Once the City becomes aware that maintenance is required, it should take 1-2 business days to complete the repair (weather and severity of repairs permitting).
If there is severe damage during the winter, replacements or repairs will need to wait until the Spring.
Curb extension placement has been adjusted to reduce impacts of snow and ice based on prior feedback from residents. Site inspections will occur to verify the effectiveness of the placement of these measures over the winter.
Curb extensions adjacent to monowalks (where there are no boulevards) will have snow pushed to the opposite side, which would result in the curb extension having less snow. When there are monowalks on both sides, the snow will be accumulated in the middle of the road and then cleared away
Curb extensions adjacent to boulevards will have snow piled onto them.
Snow will be pushed towards the boulevards and cleared with the rest of the windrow if they are removed.
The crossing portion would not be bladed, if there are persistent issues that are flagged by residents via 311, or by community project teams, they will be addressed.
Fully divided lanes will be maintained by bike lane crews. Sections or partial areas will be addressed by the adjacent roadway clearing. This may result in areas that are packed with snow, in the event that these are needed to be cleared, Active pathways can respond on special request.
Only 1 adaptable traffic diverter exists, which is in the Dovercourt community. The crosswalk in between the curbs would not experience regular clearing, and would require a special request made through 311.
These areas will be cleared with the adjacent road. Truck plows will work to provide a clean and passable surface. If residual snow is left additional clearings can be requested by calling 311.
