Traffic Calming

When speeding problems persist along a street, residents may wish to consider the installation of traffic calming measures. The City will evaluate traffic patterns and potentially implement traffic calming techniques on residential streets to inhibit traffic issues. In some cases, the city could also re-engineer the streets to have medians and curb extensions that force drivers to alter their path of travel and subsequently reduce their speeds.

Our division evaluates a street for traffic calming based on several factors and prioritizes each street for treatment based on the severity of the problem. These factors include the amount of traffic speeding on the street, how many speed-related accidents have occurred along the street, and the amount of pedestrian activity in the area.
