The Following Meeting Information Was Received From DOMI:

The Department of Mobility and Infrastructure will host an update meeting on plans to make directional changes to the traffic pattern on Jacksonia Street. The purpose of this meeting is to brief residents on feedback results from prior public meetings and discuss next steps.

These potential changes are in response to a request by residents for traffic calming in response to observed safety issues.

Upon receipt of the Traffic Calming Applications, DOMI organized a public process with residents and collected vehicle speed and volume data. A subsequent speed threshold analysis and origin-destination study showed that the most significant issue is not excessive speeding, but likely the prevalence of cut-through traffic utilizing Jacksonia Street due to it being the only east-west street in the neighborhood with continuity between Federal Street and Brighton Road.

As a means of discouraging this cut-through incentive, DOMI has developed a proposal to change direction of travel between Monterey Street and Arch Street.
