About the Presentation
The City of Lloydminster, along with ISL Engineering, completed a study of the City’s truck routes and dangerous goods routes. The objective was to review and refine options for alternate truck routes and dangerous goods routes within the City and to consult with numerous stakeholders, provide a comprehensive signage plan, and an accompanying cost estimate. The project recognized that changes to the truck routes and dangerous goods routes would require engagement between the City and stakeholders throughout the project to ensure that the City balances the needs and objectives of all stakeholders. The lack of standardized methodologies for designating truck routes and dangerous goods routes created the need for developing clear guidelines to direct the City of Lloydminster’s future decisions. Individual evaluation frameworks were developed for truck routes and dangerous goods routes which would allow route options to be objectively evaluated.
This presentation will focus on the process of developing the evaluation frameworks, lessons learned, and final recommendations for truck routes and dangerous goods routes within the City of Lloydminster, following the comprehensive city-wide truck route and dangerous goods route review.
