First Millbrae Traffic Calming Workshop Gives City Staff Better Assessment of Needs
Thank you to everyone for participating in Thursday night’s Traffic Calming Community Workshop and for taking the time to complete the survey. The workshop was a good success with more than 45 people attending and 150 people completing the online survey.
During this first workshop, City staff and City Traffic Engineering Consultant gathered feedback from residents on their assessment of local traffic problems, areas with high amounts of speeding, and areas they felt were dangerous to pedestrians. Attendees were also presented with a variety of enforcement and education strategies that have worked in other areas.
Potential traffic calming solutions presented to workshop attendees included relatively low-cost options such as lane narrowing, pavement markings, and increased signage. Moderate and high cost options ranged from striped bulb-outs and electronic signage to traffic circles and raised intersections.
This effort will help Millbrae’s Public Works Department and the Millbrae Police Bureau better understand the needs and desires of residents and develop the strategic initiatives to make the City’s streets safer.

A second Traffic Calming Community Workshop is currently be planned and will be announced in the near future.
