Hillwood Neighborhood Traffic Calming Plan
In 2011, Metro Public Works implemented a comprehensive traffic calming plan for the Hillwood Neighborhood of Davidson County. MPW coordinated with neighborhood residents to determine the most desirable locations for traffic calming measures and the most appropriate traffic management treatments. The plan includes a combination of speed limit pavement markings, solar-powered speed radar signs, chicanes, neighborhood traffic calming signs, and intersection traffic control treatments. The project also included improving a pedestrian path along Davidson Road. This project was funded by special funds donated to Metro Government by the Nashville West development for reducing traffic impacts in the Hillwood Neighborhood.
Construction began in late 2011 and was completed in 2012. Following several months of monitoring, a preliminary analysis of the project's impact has been completed and is available for review at the link below. This study will be presented for comment and discussion at a community meeting scheduled at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 4, 2012, at the Metro Police Department West Precinct, 5500 Charlotte Pike.
