Neighborhood Traffic Management Program

Late in 2014, the Town embarked upon a project to develop a Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) to help the Town manage and address neighborhood traffic issues such as speeding and cut through traffic. The NTMP is a policy document that will be designed with the help of the Town Council, community, and affected Town resources so that the list of improvements provided in the tool box available are reflective of the their needs.

The Town is served by north-south arterial corridors El Camino Real, Middlefield Road and Alameda De Las Pulgas. Because east-west access throughout Town is handled by streets that have residential frontage, complaints regarding speeding and cut through traffic are prevalent. Access to the north-south corridors can be difficult and congestion during peak periods creates the potential for cut through traffic utilizing local streets. The existing roadway network, lack of east-west collector streets, and long straight local street segments creates the desire to manage local streets with a combination of the four (4) E’s, Engineering, Enforcement, Education, and Encouragement. The NTMP program is intended to help the Town staff and local law enforcement implement the 4 E’s as projects are identified and funded

The City Council awarded a contract to the Engineering firm, Hatch Mott MacDonald, in April of 2015 to make recommendations and prepare the Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP).
