At the request of the 26th and 28th Ward Alderwomen, the Board of Public Service is conducting a traffic study for the Skinker DeBaliviere neighborhood. The City has contracted with the local office of WSP USA to provide traffic engineering services during the study. The study will develop strategies to address traffic-related concerns about safety, connectivity, and speed.
Figure 1 - Study Area
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! As a result, several proposed treatments are now being considered.
As many as 65 individuals attended a virtual public meeting on September 10, 2020 to hear the results of the traffic survey and discuss the various proposed treatments. Input and comments gathered will help guide the design and implementation of the chosen treatments.
There is still time to provide input!
