City needs partner to calm traffic in neighborhoods

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock City Hall is looking for a way to calm down traffic, especially in residential neighborhoods.  The city has invited companies to offer qualifications that would make them the best choice as the city's partner in this project. 

Official records say "The Traffic Engineering Department is contacted numerous times each year by citizens concerned with speeding in their neighborhoods or down their paved alleys."

The city's invitation goes on to say, "This Project's goal is to develop a comprehensive Neighborhood Traffic Calming Manual and Program that will establish policies and procedures for traffic calming on streets, alleys and around schools."  Lubbock hopes "to provide a more livable environment for residents."

Lubbock has approximately 170 miles of major thoroughfares, 191 miles of "collectors" or secondary thoroughfares and 690 miles of residential streets. 

The cost of calming down traffic is not known yet.  Right now the city is just looking for a company to become its partner in developing a plan. 

The city's partner will provide the following to include (but not be limited to):

  • Neighborhood Traffic Calming Guideline Manual
  • Draft ordinances to implement the guidelines
  • Cost & staffing estimates of various measures
