Support Capitol Hill Traffic Calming

CAPITOL HILL TRAFFIC CALMING 

I support the 2020 Capitol Hill Traffic Calming Plan to restore neighborhood livability and contribute to the efficiency and safety of Salt Lake City's transportation system. I recognize how this comprehensive plan will improve pedestrian, bicycle and vehicle safety, reduce vehicle noise and lower vehicle emissions, all of which affect the well-being of the community.

Key issues/goals:

  • Reduce designed vehicle speeds on all neighborhood streets
  • Protect neighborhood from commuter cut-through traffic
  • Curtail pervasive reckless, exhibitionist driving
  • Separate industrial traffic from transit, commuter, local and pedestrian traffic

Assorted transportation engineering tools:

  • Reduced speed-limit signage throughout
  • Traffic calming elements (e.g., bike lanes, crosswalks, bulb-outs, speed humps, pedestrian islands, center green strips)
  • Signal sequencing and pedestrian prioritization for safety and efficiency
  • Transit-stop location and route design to complement safety and mobility goals
  • Street and intersection typology design schemes for a better community

Hello Neighbors,
Thank you for supporting the Capitol Hill Traffic Calming Plan.
Now that Spring has arrived our streets are even busier with speeding cars, semis and other vehicles. Let's send the message to make it safer to walk to the park, school, library, store, capitol or anywhere in the neighborhood.
If we share this petition with our families, neighbors, and other friends we will quickly add another two hundred signatures. We Need Safer Streets!
