2404 Traffic Calming Manual

The Delaware Department of Transportation Division of Transportation Solutions hereby gives notice of its intention to adopt revisions to the existing Delaware Traffic Calming Manual pursuant to 29 Del.C. §8404(8) and in compliance with the Delaware Administrative Procedures Act, 29 Del.C. §10115. Traffic calming is the combination of mainly physical measures that reduce the negative effects of motor vehicle use, alter driver behavior, and improve conditions for non-motorized street users. The regulations contained in this manual are an attempt to control speeding and cut through traffic, primarily on neighborhood streets, through use of physical measures and education.

The Department solicits, and will consider timely filed written comments from interested individuals and groups concerning these proposed regulations. The deadline for the filing of such comments will be thirty (30) days after the proposed amendments are promulgated in the Delaware Register of Regulations. Any such submissions should be mailed, emailed or hand-delivered to Michael Somers, whose address is Delaware Department of Transportation, 169 Brick Store Landing Road, Smyrna, DE, 19977, or by August 31, 2012.
