Traffic

If you travel County roads by walking, biking or automobile, you are part of traffic.

Northumberland County designs County roads to increase the safety of all road users through programs, upgrades and ongoing maintenance.

Cyclists

We created the Cycling Master Plan (CMP) as a guide to enable the planning, financing and implementation of a countywide cycling network. We have designated many cycling routes and upgraded many roads.

The CMP is a 20-year plan that aims to:

  • Provide attractive cycling routes which encourage tourism
  • Link cycling paths across the County and to its neighbouring municipalities
  • Develop on-road and off-road cycling facilities
  • Enhance recreational, commuter and competitive cycling

Pedestrians

We take great interest and care in designing and upgrading crosswalks on County roads. Currently, we are studying major crosswalks with near-miss technology that will steer design and construction of any safety upgrades to the roads system.

Traffic count

We update the Average Annual Daily Traffic Count every five years. This data is useful for business proposals, land use planning, marketing and advertising, and many other uses. This information is for general information only.
