At the request of the 26th and 28th Ward Alderwomen, the Board of Public Service conducted a traffic study for the Skinker DeBaliviere neighborhood. The City contracted with the local office of WSP USA to provide traffic engineering services during the study. The study developed strategies to address traffic-related concerns about safety, connectivity, and speed.

Traffic Survey

The City conducted a traffic survey in early 2020. Over 160 individuals provided over 400 comments on the traffic conditions in the neighborhood. That's a lot of comments, folks!

Public Meeting

As many as 65 individuals attended a virtual public meeting on September 10, 2020 to hear the results of the traffic survey and to discuss various proposed treatments. Input and comments gathered helped to develop the final report.
