Neighborhood Speed Management Program

Boulder, Colorado

As part of its mission to enhance the quality of life in Boulder, the City established the Neighborhood Speed Management Program (NSMP) to mitigate the negative effects of speeding traffic on neighborhood streets. Speeding not only contributes to the severity of injuries and damage in crashes, but can also impede travel for people who walk, bike, skate, play, and move in, around, and through Boulder’s neighborhoods. Consor supported the City of Boulder in designing neighborhood traffic calming features for the Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program’s first two complex corridor projects. The project included neighborhood engagement and the identification of a preferred alternative. The designs for both corridors were approved by the City’s Transportation Advisory Board and City Council.
