Speed Table, Radar Feedback Sign Installation Underway at Pilot Locations Across the City of Cleveland  

8.17.22


Wednesday August 17, 2022 — Cleveland, OH — On Monday, installation began on the City’s new neighborhood traffic calming pilot program. The last of 10 radar speed feedback signs, placed at strategic locations across the city, were installed today. These signs display the travel speeds of passing vehicles to increase drivers' attention, awareness and reduce speeding. They will be rotated to new locations monthly based on speed data and requests from the Cleveland Division of Police (CDP), Cleveland City Council members, and residents. 

The 10 radar speed feedback signs currently in use were purchased by CDP. In the coming months, 18 more will be procured using discretionary funding from City Council.  

For the first month, the radar speed feedback signs will be in the following locations:  

  • West 85th – Madison to I-90  
  • Bosworth – Lorain to Bellaire  
  • Spring – West 11th to Broadview  
  • Storer Avenue – West 65th to West 44th  
  • E. 93rd – Cedar to Quincy  
  • E. 65th – Bessemer to Wren Ave  
  • East 116th – Buckeye to Dickens  
  • Miles Ave – E.131 to Lee  
  • Grovewood – East 156 to Marginal  
  • Green Road – Ridgehill to N. Green 

Starting tomorrow, crews from the City’s Division of Traffic Engineering and Division of Streets will begin installing rubber modular speed tables at nine locations throughout the city to slow traffic on residential roads with a documented speeding issue. Installation of the speed tables is expected to be completed within four to five weeks.  

The neighborhood traffic calming pilot program is intended to increase the quality of life for residents by creating safer streets; to reduce the chance of serious injury or death if a crash does happen; to expand local experience with street design interventions that reinforce lower speeds in residential areas; and to inform citywide traffic calming programs and guidance in alignment with the City’s Vision Zero initiative.
