Speed Bumps

20 Nov

Milvia Slow Street, North Berkeley

The design covers roughly six blocks of residential street in which 30 curb bulb-outs were placed to narrow the street at intersections and mid-block locations. These bulb-outs and planted islands create a serpentine design, which requires vehicles to slow and negotiate a winding path along the street, thus creating a safer, quieter street and neighborhood for bicycling, walking and even simply conversing in front yard.

Since the installation, both formal studies and resident surveys report that Milvia Street has become much safer and that the number and severity of accidents has decreased dramatically. The success of Milvia Street has led to the installation of speed humps on over twenty other streets in Berkeley.
