Traffic Calming to be Discussed May 11

Traffic Calming to be discussed at Hamden Traffic Authority meeting

Wednesday, May 11 at 6pm, in the Miller Library Senior Center Activity Room


At the request of the Spring Glen Civic Association, Traffic Calming has been placed on the agenda of the Hamden Traffic Authority for their meeting Wednesday, May 11 at 6pm, in the Miller Library Senior Center Activity Room. All Hamden residents are encouraged to attend, and there may be an opportunity to speak. The more citizens who participate, the greater the impact we will make as to the seriousness and urgency of this matter.

For your review- the East-West Traffic Study submitted to the town in April, 2012, from data gathered October-December, 2011:

In October 2011 an online traffic calming survey was posted and a link was distributed to the neighborhood associations and residents. The response period was extended through December 2011 at the request of residents. Over 190 responses were collected from residents on 53 different streets. Survey respondents ranked traffic study corridor streets in terms of their traffic safety concerns in the following order:


  1. Mather Street
  2. Putnam Avenue
  3. Treadwell Street
  4. Waite Street
  5. Augur Street
  6. Armory Street
  7. Connolly Parkway
  8. Ardmore Street
  9. Mill Rock Road
  10. Haverford Street
  11. Elgin Street
