Transportation Engineering

One of the Town of Caledon's top priorities is an effective and efficient transportation system for the future. With a long-term vision of providing a "Balanced Transportation System" for the movement of people and goods, accessible to all Caledon residents, and that reaffirms the Town's objectives to sustainable development, protection of the natural environment, economic vitality, and healthy communities, the Town's Transportation Master Plan envisions the integration of all modes and elements of transportation.

The Multi-Modal Transportation Master Plan, Active Transportation Master Plan, Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA), and development-related transportation investigations like Secondary plans are planned and carried out by the Transportation Engineering Division. The planning and implementation of trails, bicycle infrastructure, and traffic calming measures within the public right-of-way fall under the purview of transportation engineering.
