In response to neighborhood concerns about speeding traffic on Jefferson Street between 13th and 28th Avenues, and a history of traffic, the City installed a traffic calming project in November 2021.
The intent of the traffic calming project is to address speeding traffic and improve the comfort and safety of the people using the street. Jefferson Street has been identified as a Vision Zero corridor where efforts are focused to reduce crashes and improve safety for all people using the street.
Speed cushions slow traffic like speed humps while also allowing emergency vehicles to move through the area. We have installed speed humps in many different areas around the city including nearby Lincoln and Friendly streets.
