2019 Traffic Calming Projects in Langley City

Last week, I posted about the various city-led infrastructure projects that are in the works for 2019 including a high-level overview of the proposed traffic-calming projects for this year. Today, I wanted to share more detail about these proposed projects.

Langley City council approved a $60,000 budget for traffic calming this year. The total capital projects budget is about $10 million this year. The three sites selected are as follows.

Douglas Park Community School

Proposed measures: Two speed humps and one raised crosswalk.

Langley City’s Engineering Department is look to get your feedback about the proposed traffic calming measures. You can fill out a traffic calming questionnaire, and email the completed questionnaire to For other ways to submit feedback, please visit Langley City’s website. Feedback is being accepted until May 31st.

I frequently receive queries from people asking about how to get traffic calming in their neighbourhood or street. The first step is to go to, and submit a request. The request type is “Roads” and the request subtype is “Traffic Calming”. The more people that submit a request for an area, the higher the chance that it will be considered for traffic calming.
