I suggest the City ...

Coordinate the signal timing at the intersections at 400 and Essa road to allow better traffic flow especially at rush hour

The signal timing at the intersections on Essa road, especially near the Highway 400 on/off ramps, needs to be reviewed. Traffic flow is significantly affected, while it flows easily through the rest of the Essa corridor.

        The city has already paid for a survey and you'd like them to pay again for another or did you have specific ideas on how to improve the system? I bet you could contact the traffic planning department and share your insights.

        Amen to this idea....essa is a parking lot and the lights are completly timed wrong at 400 essa overpass

        An awesome idea, problem is the MTO owns those lights and they do not cowardinate with Barrie (politics) which is why they are always out of sync

        Traffic signals are timed to move the maximum number of vehicles through an intersection and along a corridor in the safest and most efficient manner. Many factors add to the difficulty of minimizing stop-and-go traffic in all directions: closely spaced signals; intersections where major streets cross; changes in traffic volume; traffic collisions; emergency vehicles; roadwork; and weather.

        Staff monitor all major roadways daily to minimize traffic delays and disruption, using traffic signal software, video, and GPS technology to continuously monitor signals and flow along Barrie's major arterial and collector routes. For more information, please visit www.barrie.ca/traffic.
