The Transportation and Parking Commission oversees the City’s traffic calming program, which aims to encourage safe driving behavior through visual and physical measures. The measures used in this program, such as pavement markings, speed humps, and speed tables, may reduce travel speeds and traffic volumes on residential streets. The traffic calming manual describes the process that is used to initiate possible projects. Recorded traffic data and characteristics of the roadways are used in determining if there is an issue and what device is most appropriate to alleviate the problem. Please note that narrowing long stretches of roadways, intersection redesign, or any other major reconstruction is not done under this program.
