Townwide Traffic Calming Plan
MARLIN prepared a Townwide Traffic Calming Plan to evaluate and identify particular locations which presented speeding/traffic volume problems, determine whether and where traffic calming measures were needed, and, if so, developed suggestions as to what type of traffic calming measures are recommended for that particular street location in order to reduce any identified speeding and/or traffic volume problems.
A comprehensive data collection effort was performed as part of the study and included: 24-hour average daily and peak hour traffic counts and 85th percentile speed data. Field reviews were performed to evaluate the existing traffic characteristics of the neighborhoods and to determine the locations where existing traffic calming devices were already installed throughout the Town.
MARLIN developed a set of recommended traffic calming improvements, which included: speed tables, raised crosswalks, and roundabouts. A five year plan for implementation was prepared based on annual budget constraints and complexity of designing and implementing improvements.
Following the study, phase 2 of the project was the design of final construction plans and technical specifications, including obtaining necessary permits from Miami-Dade County. Post design services include preparation of bid documents and construction inspection services.
