Project Location:

Various locations throughout the City.

Project Description:

The City of Salinas has adopted a Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) to address and resolve Salinas neighborhood traffic concerns. These new tools and their appropriate applications provide a response to the negative effects of speeding and traffic volumes on Salinas neighborhood streets. The Institute of Transportation Engineers defines “traffic calming” as “the combination of mainly physical measures that reduce the negative effects of motor vehicle use, alter driver behavior, and improve conditions for non-motorized street users.”
