Request Speed Humps

Thursday, April 13, 2017

Speed Humps are designed to reduce vehicular speed on residential local or collector streets that have a single lane of travel in each direction. While generally effective in reducing vehicle speeds and volume, speed humps also have disadvantages such as the potential for increased vehicle noise when traversing the hump as well as increased emergency vehicle response times. 

For additional information regarding speed humps, please refer to the Speed Hump “What You Need To Know About Speed Humps” Fact Sheet and the  Speed Hump Evaluation Guidelines.

Please note the link from which to submit a request for speed humps is currently closed. When a date to receive new requests is determined, a notice will be posted here at least 2‐weeks prior to the opening.
