Check Your Speed

Eight radar feedback signs have been successfully installed to date. These initial locations are one on Picasso Drive, one on Frank Hengel Way, two on Vintage Parkway, two on Neroly Road (adjacent to the High School), and two on Simoni Ranch Road. (Plans are to relocate the two on Simoni Ranch Rd to place them in locations that are more visible without sacrificing the landscaping along Simoni Ranch Rd). These eight signs have all been programmed to flash when the driver exceeds the school zone speed limit. The City has received very positive comments about the signage and they serve as great reminders to all of us to stay within the speed limit – especially in school zones.

Some more technologically elaborate radar signs that collect data will be installed in the at three locations within the next week or so ‐‐ two of these signs will be on Laurel Road and one on Empire Avenue. These signs will provide real time feedback for speeds and traffic volume via an Internet link. One will go on northbound Empire Avenue, north of Laurel Road, one on eastbound Laurel Road coming down off the bypass and one westbound Laurel Road between O’Hara Avenue and Empire Avenue. The signs will help control speeds and monitor volume on two of the City’s major arterials.

The flashing yellow beacon that was destroyed due to a drunk driver has been reinstalled along Cypress Road this week. There was a major delay in delivering the required steel pole, however, the last of the parts arrived last week and was installed this week.
