A small number of the speed humps that were approved last year but were not installed due to ongoing utility and resurfacing work will be among the first for 2022, officials say. DPW says it has received more than 20,000 speed hump requests from residents.
Criteria that DPW considers for placing the speed humps is as follows:
- Local residential streets with a speed limit of 25 mph
- Priority given to streets adjacent to active schools and parks
- DPD records of speeding and vehicle crashes
- Street used as known cut through to or from a major road
- Block housing density
- Number of school-aged children
- Resident support on the block and valid request made
