Alternatives to Speed Bumps
Location: Terrace Place from PPSW to Sherman St and from Sherman St to Prospect Avenue.
The undersigned request that DOT consider alternate choices including stop signs and flashing slow traffic lights in lieu of speed bumps proposed for Terrace Place between PPSW and Sherman Street. ALL WAY stop signs (in place of the current pedestrian crossing sign) at the Sherman Street/Temple Court intersections on Terrace Place, added to the new traffic design at the corner of Windsor Pl / Terrace PL/ PPSW, will further slow motorists, buses and trucks, increase safety and maintain the quality of life residents desire at this location . Another factor already in place is the louvered traffic light at Terrace PL and Prospect Avenue.
A second alternative could be the installation of a four-way flashing yellow light at the same intersection.
Increase safety. Note: The Sherman /Terrace intersection is a school crossing.
Calm traffic ( on both Terrace, Sherman and Prospect intersects).
Stop the need for speed humps
Prevent noise issues that would come with humps
Prevent potential for street damage secondary to speed humps
No street damage potential
This would all be accomplished by using simple, logical, quiet, cost effective and PROVEN technology!
