West Park Avenue Traffic Calming Pilot Project
In response to neighborhood concerns, the city of Durango will be implementing a traffic calming pilot project for West Park Avenue. The traffic calming pilot project will address speeding and safety concerns with design elements that narrow the roadway and help slow traffic. Paint and delineators will be installed to create pinchpoints and curb extensions. City staff met with West Park Avenue residents and worked with them on the traffic calming design. The design can be found here.
The city’s contractor was able to paint the curb extensions and is anticipated to return within a couple of weeks to install the delineators. The city obtained traffic and speeding data last summer and will follow-up a month after installation to evaluate the impact of the pilot project on speeds. The pilot project is anticipated to be in place until a permanent redesign of the street is constructed.
