Neighborhood Traffic Calming Policy in Full Effect New Signs Coming to Selected Residential Streets

The growth and development of the City of Oakley as a vibrant and active community makes it a favorite destination for families to make it their home. The desire of residents for neighborhood traffic calming has also increased, which is a natural progression of a young and growing community.chosin

The City of Oakley has been pro‐actively working on addressing a wide range of neighborhood traffic calming requests. The City Council adopted the updated Neighborhood Traffic Management Policy on November
18, 2014. This policy provides a clear and transparent process that will be used by City staff to work
collaboratively with residents to address traffic related issues and inquiries. Public Works and Police Department staff are currently working on 11 traffic calming requests. As result of this effort, a series of new Traffic Calming signs (as shown) will be installed in selected residential streets, in addition to enhanced police speed enforcement. City staff will continue to be engaged in the collaborative work with residents in addressing neighborhood traffic calming issues and will deploy a variety of measures to achieve the successful results in enhancing the quality of life for the residents of the community.

    Thank you for the good traffic calming effort by the city.
    My experience with some traffic speed reduction efforts on Gateway Drive have been mixed. Some drivers do no slow for the speed reduction bumps, others slow and then accelerate quickly and noisily from one bump to the next. I think the biggest improvement came as a result of the double yellow center line and the visit of the speed report radar trailer.
    The yellow flashing lights to facilitate use of the crosswalk to the park has become unsafe as fewer drivers even slow when the street level lights are flashing, even passing oer vehicles stopped at the crosswalk to permit pedestrians to cross, a clear law violation. We need an eye level flashing red for safe crossing.
