Last fall, Athens-Clarke County Transportation and Public Works conducted a traffic study on the east end of Boulevard. The results confirmed that we have a lot of traffic (3,000 cars/day, mostly cut-through) and that it’s fast (85% of cars exceeding 35 mph, while the speed limit is 30 mph). Therefore, we qualify for traffic calming measures at no cost.
Traffic Engineering staff and the Mayor & Commission need to know what measure(s) we most prefer. Please follow the link below to fill out a survey for your preferences.
*Note that not all of the options presented in this questionnaire are necessarily appropriate for our neighborhood; they are a broad sampling of available tools.
After the questionnaire period closes, we will work with staff and elected officials to choose the best measures based on your input, professional guidance, and other factors.
Join us this Saturday as we work on removing some invasive species at Boulevard Woods. This is an important part of park maintenance—not only does it promote a robust and healthy ecosystem in and around the park, but it also makes the area more pleasant and easier to maintain over the long term!
Please join us 10 a.m.-noon at Boulevard Woods Park (298 Barber St.) for this collaborative restoration and beautification workday!
