District 18 Traffic Calming Projects

February 3, 2021 8:08 PM

The Transportation Commission meeting next week Wednesday, February 10 at 5:00 p.m. to consider the list of streets proposed to receive traffic calming infrastructure. 

Streets are required to obtain at least 30 points in our ranking system to be considered eligible for traffic calming projects. However, exceptions may be made for streets that do not obtain 30 points but have exceptionally high speeds, shown by the speed data. Please remember that streets with Metro Transit bus routes or streets that are highly-used emergency medical service or fire routes cannot receive speed humps.

Six of the top thirty proposed projects that scored over 30 points - 20% - are in District 18, including three sections of Wheeler Rd., Forster Dr., Troy Dr. between N. Sherman and Northport, and N. Sherman between Delaware and Mayfield. Four of these streets are on EMS routes and cannot receive speed humps, though other forms of traffic calming may be considered. You can see the ranked list here. Thanks to all the neighbors who reached out to me and the Traffic Engineering department with your concerns.

The Transportation Commission is a public meeting and is held virtually, on Zoom. Meeting details will appear on this page the week of the meeting:
