A multi-phase traffic calming project is underway in Telluride, Colorado. The plan has been well thought out and includes a variety of measures estimated to cost more than $150,000. The addition of raised sidewalks, if approved, will add another $22,000 apiece.
The initiative is comprehensive including everything from chicanes to driver feedback signs, which are, perhaps, one of the most effective and and most affordable traffic calming strategies.
While we’ve seen driver speed signs included in larger traffic-calming programs for years, they are being recognized as an integral component in larger plans–an “industry standard” in slowing speeding drivers and protecting the lives of bicyclists and pedestrians.
