White Oak Avenue Traffic Calming

Traffic calming is the use of physical road design and/or other measures to slow vehicles as they move through neighborhoods. These measures aim to prioritize pedestrians and bicycles and increase safety for these roadway users.

The Town of Munster has secured funding through the state’s Community Crossings Matching Grant program to repave a portion of White Oak Avenue this fall. In conjunction with the paving project, the Town is exploring the option of installing traffic calming measures. The three options are:

  1. Installation of speed humps
  2. Construction of chicanes
  3. No implementation of traffic calming measures, repave the road with the current cross-section

Please see the attached exhibits which show the proposed location of the speed humps or chicanes in the project area.

The Town is collecting resident feedback on these options through a survey located here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/J8KZQ63
