Neighborhood Transportation Program
The Neighborhood Transportation Program is a bond-funded program that represents multiple strategic projects designed to improve pedestrian, cyclist and motorist safety and mobility. The program allows the City the flexibility to respond to community transportation issues and opportunities. Through its projects, the program can positively impact traffic safety, traffic congestion, bicycle safety and mobility, connectivity and traffic calming both in neighborhoods and on thoroughfares. Projects are identified through data collection, field observation, residents’ requests and Citywide community engagement efforts.
The program also enables the City to partner with other public and private entities to produce a project that serves all transportation modes – cars, pedestrian and bicyclists. This is accomplished by leveraging opportunities with private development to create an enhanced transportation network beyond the basic developer required improvements, and participate on state-funded projects ensuring a final project consistent with City design standards.
