The Horton Street Experimental Traffic Calming Project

 A proposed experiment to install temporary traffic diverters and traffic calming measures on the Horton Street Bicycle Boulevard

                                                   Please come and share your thoughts.

                                                            Community Meetings
                                                         Saturday, 9/27, 10 am-12 noon
                                                        Tuesday, 9/30, 9 am – 10:30 am
                             Emeryville City Hall, City Council Chambers, 1333 Park Avenue, Emeryville

The aim of this project is to determine if the proposed measures are effective in reducing traffic volume and speed to levels identified in the City’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan, and to give residents and businesses an opportunity to see the effects of the proposed changes before they are made permanent. 

Location of proposed traffic diverters:  Horton Street at 45th Street and Horton Street at Stanford Avenue

Location of proposed traffic calming measures:  Horton Street between 45th Street and 53rd Street.

Horton Street is a Bicycle Boulevard with vehicular traffic volumes that exceed the allowable limit of 3,000 daily trips. Residents also report a problem with speeding traffic.  The City’s Bicycle Plan identifies a number of Bicycle Boulevard treatment options to consider to address these issues.

This project will include the design and installation of experimental traffic calming measures on Horton Street.  Calming measures may incorporate temporary diverters or other measures identified in the City’s Bicycle Plan. The project will include taking traffic counts and speed zone surveys at key locations to determine the results of the measures taken.  This project is necessary to determine the effectiveness of proposed traffic calming measures and to observe the impacts to traffic circulation as a result of implementing the experimental measures.
