Welcome to the Neighborhood Traffic Calming web page of the Columbus Consolidated Government (CCG). This web page has two primary functions. First, to let the public request a traffic-calming project for their neighborhood. Second, it is also intended to let other jurisdictions know the process that is being followed in Columbus, GA.
For a citizen to request that a neighborhood traffic calming study be done: it is suggested that they first read the traffic calming policy established by the City Council of the CCG. Next a set of possible measures should be reviewed to see if one or more of the measures can be considered. Soft measures are those that can be readily implemented and hard measures are those that will require geometric considerations prior to their construction.
When the policy has been reviewed, the CitiLink Service Request can be entered for the traffic study. The Traffic Engineering Division will provide a base map and petition from which the citizen will be requested to obtain signature of 20 per cent of the residents. The rest of the process is outlined in the policy. It is also shown in a graphical form.
