Does your Edmonds street need calming?

Mar 03, 2017

The city of Edmonds is requesting public input on its 2017 traffic calming program. The annual program has a budget of $20,000 to address speeding concerns and reduce cut-through traffic on any street.

The program consists of a three-phase process: petition and review for qualification; education/enforcement; and installation of traffic-calming devices.

In order for a location to be considered in the 2017 traffic calming program, citizens must file forms found at http://www.edmondswa.gov/transportation-text/traffic-calming-program.html. The petition must have supporting signatures from at least eight different households within the neighborhood.

Projects deemed qualified will be prioritized and pursued based on available funding.

In past years, the program has funded the installation of speed-radar feedback signs, signing and pavement markings. Alternative solutions may be considered depending on location and the traffic concern.

Submit the petition form by Tuesday, March 7, to Bertrand Hauss, Transportation Engineer either by email, bertrand.hauss@edmondswa.gov, or mail to Edmonds City Hall (Attn: Engineering Division), 121 Fifth Ave. N Edmonds, WA 98020.
