Despite a rainy spring, the City of Columbia Public Works Street Division completed four Council-approved traffic calming projects in April. The projects included a pedestrian safety project on Walnut Street, a Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) project on Rainforest Parkway and two Capital Improvement Program (CIP) calming projects on Canterbury Drive and Scottson Way. The projects consisted of installing speed humps and speed tables to improve safety by slowing traffic. The total estimated investment for all four projects was $50,000. All projects passed through the City’s public involvement process. More information about these and additionally planned projects is available at CoMo.gov/PublicWorks/Construction.
