3D speed 'humps' coming to Ottawa

By CBC News Ottawa, August 9, 2018

Ottawa's first three-dimensional speed hump is coming to a road near Elmvale Acres Shopping Centre, as part of a pilot project aimed at slowing down motorists in the area.

The mid-block markings, which use textured paint to give the illusion of a raised speed hump, will be painted on Othello Avenue between Wingate Drive and Chapman Boulevard.

The speed hump is not a crosswalk.

City staff will study traffic speeds both before and after installation to determine whether the markings have the desired effect.
