Slow Down! Children Ahead!

Making the streets safe for everyone is a priority, especially near our community centers and schools. SDOT works to calm traffic on streets where speeding has become a problem and the community has voiced its concern. This was the case on both Mary Avenue NW and 14th Avenue NW between NW 92nd and NW 95th Streets, until new speed humps were installed on both streets.

Mary Avenue NW and 14th Avenue NW are in a portion of the Crown Hill neighborhood that is adjacent to Holman Road NW, which is a main arterial. As traffic backs up, drivers have been known to cut through the neighborhood to avoid waiting through the traffic signals. Now, drivers that choose to cut through the neighborhood to reach NW 100th Street will have to slow down as they pass the nearby child development center. By installing these four speed humps, drivers can’t avoid slowing down and being reminded of the posted speed limit.
