Montreal will install speed bumps, plastic posts and flower pots along Camillien-Houde Way this summer in an effort to slow cars and improve safety.In addition, new traffic lights will be installed to create a small “alternating one-way” section. Bikes and pedestrians will be able to go in both directions in this area but the traffic lights will alternate allowing cars to go east-bound or west-bound.The announcement comes three weeks after the city’s public-consultation agency rejected Mayor Valérie Plante’s preferred plan for Mount Royal: banning all through traffic.Instead, it said Remembrance Rd. and Camillien-Houde Way should be transformed into a slow moving, tree-lined scenic drive “to enhance the Mount Royal experience and the discovery of its landscape, natural and cultural heritage, while reducing and discouraging through traffic.”
