Melvin Traffic Calming

Median and choker conceptOver the past year, a group of West Annapolis and Wardour residents worked with the city to come up with a plan to address speeding on Melvin Avenue. The plan includes the temporary installation of three traffic calming chokers along Melvin. These islands should cause drivers to slow down by narrowing the road. The bike lanes won’t be interrupted.

Many thanks to the neighbors who have devoted their time to this effort and to those willing to give up their street parking on Melvin at the installation sites.

See below for a letter from the city explaining the project and maps of the proposed locations. There is no firm date yet for the installation.
