The final test project on Woodward Heights is a speed hump, located at Bermuda (south) by the Heights Market. This location was chosen as it is a gateway entrance into the City. The speed hump will slow down traffic entering the City.
The City Commission will be considering whether to make this speed hump permanent at their September 8 meeting. In the meantime, we will be measuring traffic speeds at various distances from the hump to see how it influences traffic speeds.
If you have ever wanted a speed hump on your street, this is an excellent opportunity to go out and see, hear, and feel what is is like to live next to a speed hump. While it does limit traffic speed, there are noise impacts from these. As such, we will be surveying the residents who live within 300 feet of the test speed hump to obtain their thoughts.
