WEEK OF 4/28/17

Traffic Calming and Redirection Plan: As previously reported, during our three district-specific public traffic meetings held in April, residents had the opportunity to hear presentations from our traffic engineer, Marlin Engineering, informing them of the streets within their district that meet the requirements for traffic calming projects. Residents also discussed additional areas of concern, which are already being analyzed by the traffic engineer. This analysis includes the installation of additional traffic counters to address areas not previously counted but were identified as a concern during one of the three traffic calming meetings.  

Once the data for the additional areas has been collected and reviewed with performance goals in place, the next step is to develop the preliminary recommendations which will be discussed with the county to see if they meet their requirement for approval. Finally, the findings and final recommendations approved by the county are shared with the Village Council and the residents. This final phase is expected to last approximately six weeks from start to finish. The projects will be prioritized and the timelines and funding options will be finalized during the budget process which takes place during the summer months.      

We will continue to provide more updates as additional information becomes available. 

Speed Table Installations: The temporary speed tables on SW 180 Street between 77 Avenue and 78 Place will be removed beginning next week and will be relocated and installed on SW 143 Street between 77 Avenue and 78 Avenue. Please use caution when driving in these areas. Delays can be expected.
