[ARCHIVED] Olde Town: Traffic Calming Pilot Program Survey Update and Traffic Data

At the end of January, temporary traffic calming devices were installed on Alder, Andrews and Bush Streets as part of the City’s Olde Town Traffic Calming Pilot Program. 

A survey was launched asking for your feedback on Monday, Feb. 12.  

A few residents reported bugs with the original version, so we have since revised the survey and updated it to this version.

If you participated in the original survey your feedback will be combined with the feedback from the current version. 

If you haven’t done so already, please take the survey and let us know what’s working, what’s not working, which type of device you prefer and what you think about each of the locations. 

Your comments will help shape the plan for a permanent solution. 

Throughout the 10 weeks, feedback will be collected through the survey, as well as data from rotating speed count traffic tubes. 

Traffic Count Data 
Traffic count data is now available below and on The data will continue to be updated as the pilot program continues.  

Select a PDF from the list below to view data visualizations and the raw data itself. These documents were last updated in February 2018 and will continue to be updated throughout the program.

As part of the pilot program, the no left turn signs will be temporarily covered beginning March 12. Speed and traffic counts will continue to be monitored and evaluated when this temporary change occurs to determine the effectiveness of the devices in place without the signs. Data with and without the signs will be compared at the end of the program.


In early 2017, City Council allocated $100,000 for traffic calming measures in Olde Town.

Staff has gathered resident feedback through surveys and also at a neighborhood meeting earlier in August about preferred traffic calming measures and potential locations.
