The City of Port Moody introduced traffic calming measures on Spring Street in 2021 to improve pedestrian, cyclist, and driver safety. These traffic calming measures, which came into effect as part of a pilot project, supported the City's Official Community Plan (OCP) and were in response to concerns raised by residents. These temporary measures were monitored for effectiveness from Spring 2021 through to Spring 2022.  

Impact to you

  • no eastbound vehicle access to Spring Street from Douglas Street, Elgin Street, and Kyle Street
  • no westbound vehicle access to Spring Street from Grant Street and Moody Street
  • right turn only for eastbound traffic on Spring Street at Moody Street

Project details

Traffic monitoring indicated that commuters are using Spring Street to avoid the evening rush hour on Clarke Street and St. Johns Street. Spring Street was not designed for commuter traffic and the changes at the five intersections noted above are designed to stop commuters from using Spring Street to bypass Clarke Street or St. Johns Street during peak travel times.

In August 2024, permanent concrete barricades will be set up at five intersections to prevent traffic from entering. Vehicles will still be able to exit Spring Street at all intersections. Restrictions will not apply to pedestrians, cyclists, or authorized City service vehicles.
