PRESERVATION OF NEIGHBORHOODS BY TRAFFIC DIVERTERS

This report presents an analysis of the City of Dallas' experiences with traffic diverters. Case studies of residential neighborhoods confrontations with traffic diverters and recommendations for special neighborhood traffic control improvements are presented. Traffic diverters are offered as one possible solution to the problem of preserving residential neighborhoods. This is accomplished by diverting traffic around rather than through the neighborhood. Three neighborhoods in different areas of the City of Dallas were studied for the possible permanent implementation of traffic diverters. Methodologies implemented on a test basis included diagonal, partial, and mid-block diverters, stop signs, and speed limit signs.
