Traffic calming (January 2017 update)

In 2013, for both the North Lamar and the Georgian Acres neighborhood planning areas, the neighborhood team identified traffic calming as the top priority for the city’s capital budget. In 2015, stakeholders throughout the area prioritized traffic calming to Councilman Casar for the city’s “quarter cent funds”.

We have the following streets in various stages of the analysis, ranking and installation process:

  • Funded!
    • 13A-0025 Grady, Motheral to Brownie
      Thanks, David. The city anticipates construction later this year. In the meantime, slow down, people!
    • 14A-0023 Diamondback, I35 to Garrett Run
      Esmeralda stepped in and got the petition signatures for this dangerous street where so many of our children live. Thanks also to Angelica and Aggie for your work.
    • 12B-0012 Georgian Dr, Home Pl to Wonsley
      Georgian has been funded from the city’s “quarter-cent funds”. To meet the city requirements, Dottie, Julian and other neighborhood team members had to contact over 300 residences and other property owners. Special thanks to all the friends, neighbors and children who pitched in.
    • 13B-0073 W Longspur, Plover to Oriole
      Thanks, Alice! This road now scores 102 points, ranked #17.
    • 14A-0012 W Elliott
      Elliott scored 94 points, and ranked #21. Great job, Brooke and Julia!
    • 13B-0022 Beaver
      Thanks, Jeremy! Beaver scores 93 points, and is ranked #24.
    • 14A-0036 North Creek, Rundberg to Rock Hollow
      North Creek also scores 93 points, and is ranked #25.
  • Eligible
    • 14A-0008 East Dr
      East Dr. is eligible for traffic calming, with the installation of road humps. Neighbors are still discussing how they want to move forward. Contact Beverly for more information.
    • 14B-0023 Oriole
      Oriole is eligible for traffic calming, but the petition with signatures of all the residents and property owners hasn’t been completed yet. Contact LisaH if you’d like to work with the neighborhood team on this.
    • 16B-0059 E Powell Georgian to IH35 frontage road
      Thanks, Jeremy! Powell still needs to complete the petition process, with signatures from the owner or resident of each property, before it will be funded.
    • 16B-0041 Deen
      Yay, Pat (with an assist from Lyn)! Deen still needs to complete the petition process, but should have funding as soon as that is done.
  • Not active
    Contact LisaH if you’re interested in working with the neighborhood team to make any of these roads safer for cars, bikes, and pedestrians. Or, if you live or own property on the street, you can submit the traffic calming application yourself.

    • 12B-0004 Applegate, North Lamar to Brownie
      The application for Applegate has expired and needs to be resubmitted.
    • 13A-0050 Wonsley, Purnell to Gessner
      The application for Wonsley has expired and needs to be resubmitted.
  • Not eligible
    • 13A-0049 Purnell, 183 to Wonsley
      Did not meet speeding criteria. There are roughly 1000 cars per day, but the 85th percentile speeds were only 26.5 & 29, with a 30mph limit.
