The Parking & Traffic Safety Committee has received numerous requests from neighborhoods throughout the City regarding traffic volumes, motor vehicle speeds, and pedestrian safety. A majority of these requests deal with street intersections, which would be enhanced with minor modifications to the geometry of the streets at the intersections. Projects identified in the City's Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) would make improvements to various intersections involving realignment, curbing, signage and other traffic calming methods. These slight modifications would improve safety for both pedestrian and motor vehicle traffic. The Greenleaf Avenue and Lafayette Road intersection has been identified as a difficult intersection, which needs improvement.
On June 3, 2021, the Department of Public Works and Public & Traffic Safety Committee hosted a public input session via Zoom. For the video of that meeting, click here. Additional public input sessions will be held as the preliminary design process advances.
