Brentwood Road Traffic Calming Project

Improving street safety for motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists while improving the living conditions for residents along a street

We installed specialized traffic calming devices along Brentwood road to help slow vehicular traffic.

Traffic calming devices installed include:

  • Chicanes: A series of alternating mid-block curb extensions or islands that narrow the roadway and require vehicles to follow a curving, s-shaped path.
  • Split Pinch Points: A traffic calming treatment that uses a small island and curb extensions near intersections to make drivers slow down as they approach and drive through the intersection in an s-shaped path.
  • Neighborhood Traffic Circles: These small traffic circles slow vehicular speed along neighborhood streets. Unlike roundabouts, neighborhood traffic circles are built within the intersection and do not have as large a footprint as roundabouts.
