Temporary Traffic Calming Installation – Harter Heights Neighborhood


Sponsored by City of South Bend

Location:  Meet at Intersection of Notre Dame Avenue and South Bend Avenue

Traffic calming is the combination of physical measures that reduce negative effects of motor vehicle use, alter driver behavior, and improve conditions for pedestrians. The goal of traffic calming is to create safer roads and increase the quality of life for neighborhoods in South Bend. Through its Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program, the City of South Bend’s Public Works Department has partnered with the Harter Heights Neighborhood Association to study traffic flow, design a plan to implement temporary traffic calming measures. Data will be collected to determine what permanent traffic calming measure will work best in each location. Volunteers will help install traffic calming measures in the neighborhood including straw bump-outs, traffic circles and cones, and educational signage.

Project requires long pants and closed toed shoes.

Number of Volunteers Needed:   10-15
