Beginning Jan. 25, temporary traffic calming devices will be installed on Alder, Andrews and Bush Streets as part of the City’s Olde Town Traffic Calming Pilot Program.
Installation of the devices is expected to take two to three weeks and the pilot program will run for 10 weeks after installation is complete. During installation, temporary street closures might be necessary, but residential/local traffic will still have access.
A variety of traffic calming devices will be installed, consisting of speed humps, speed cushions, speed tables, traffic circles and chicanes. The humps, cushions and tables will be constructed out of rubber material that may be removed and reused elsewhere in the city after the conclusion of the pilot program.
The goal of the pilot program is to implement a variety of traffic calming counter measures, then collect feedback from residents and data from speed count traffic tubes.
The data and feedback gathered will be used to determine future permanent traffic calming measures for Olde Town.
