During the March 2, 2021, Public Hearing, the Raleigh City Council approved the Brentwood Traffic Calming project.
As part of the project, a variety of traffic calming devices will be installed along Brentwood Road.
Traffic calming devices being 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.
