Traffic Pilot Projects

The City is testing several traffic solutions around town. These are expected to reduce speeding, increase safety, and clear up some confusing spots.

Each of these projects is being installed on a temporary basis this fall. Over the course of the trial period, feedback from the public and technical data will be collected. These will be combined in a report to City Council who will decide whether or not these pilot projects will become permanent installations.

    The City is seeking public feedback on these and other pilot projects through an online survey.
