Longwell Traffic Calming Action Plan

Town of Perinton, Monroe County, New York

SRF worked with the Town to develop a Neighborhood Traffic Management Plan to curb excessive speeding and traffic volume problems. This project involved the investigation of existing speed and volume conditions. Traffic calming solutions were selected and evaluated, and recommendations were made for the re-design of 3 intersections and 5 other areas were identified for traffic calming features. SRF’s recommendations include immediate low-cost techniques such as lane-narrowing by pavement re-striping as well as more elaborate solutions including a modern roundabout. Raised median islands were also recommended as effective treatments to reduce vehicular speeds thereby creating a safer environment for pedestrians and bicyclists.
