Best Lane Traffic Calming

Best Lane Traffic Calming

Construction of traffic calming speed cushions was completed in April of 2015. Neighbors agreed to go forward with construction of the traffic calming devices following two community meetings on December 18, 2014 and January 22, 2015 at the Willakenzie Grange Hall. The traffic calming installation responds to neighborhood concern about speed traffic and the safety of children traveling to Willakenzie Park.

A series of six traffic calming speed cushions were placed between Willakenzie Road and Elysium Avenue at no cost to property owners. Before and after speed studies will be conducted on Best Lane and neighboring streets to determine the effect of the traffic calming. Another project will repave the street in 2017 and allow for any needed adjustment to the traffic calming installation.
