Roundabout at Stonehaven/Steeple Chase/Bridgestone

The intersection of Bridgestone Drive / Steeple Chase Drive and Stonehaven Drive lies in the heart of the Bridlewood community in Kanata South.  The intersection is currently controlled by an all-way stop, which is experiencing an unacceptable level of service in the morning and afternoon peak periods.  All three roads are currently classified as collector roadways.  The immediate vicinity of the intersection is built-out, with some additional development still to occur to the south-east along Stonehaven Drive.  A traffic count was conducted at this intersection in the fall of 2011, which showed that the interesection warranted an upgrade. A Roundabout was identified as  both the safest alternative and the most cost effective solution to the grid lock we have today.

The intersection of Stonehaven Drive between Eagleson Road and Bridlewood Drive is being widened in the summer of 2012.  The  intersection of Bridgestone Drive / Steeple Chase Drive and Stonehaven Drive is not included in the limits of the widening project; however, its close proximity to the planned construction to the west would cause significant additional construction related disruption to the community should the proposed roundabout  be approved.  The intent is to minimize the impact on the community and build the proposed roundabout within the same construction period.

How to Navigate a Roundabout

With the Stonehaven roundabout now in place – but not the finished product, as further improvements are coming – City staff will be distributing flyers to area residents with information on how to navigate through the roundabout.
