Salt Lake City is planning to test traffic calming devices on the Emery Street Neighborhood Byway between 700 South and Indiana Ave. Traffic calming features for this pilot project will consist of horizontal deflection only (for example, medians and chicanes). Vertical devices (like, speed humps) are generally more permanent and beyond the budget available for this pilot.
The goal for this project is to work with the community to better understand preferences, concerns, and effectiveness of traffic calming devices, to help inform the Livable Streets Program and more permanent speed reduction installations. The use of more temporary materials will also provide an opportunity to make changes to the design if desired.
This pilot project is anticipated to last for approximately two years. After that time, these semi-permanent features will likely be removed and the project will be evaluated.
Community engagement and design will last through the summer. With community support of the final design, traffic calming feature are tentatively schedule to be implemented this fall.
