Does the City of Cedar Park have a traffic calming program?

The City of Cedar Park does not have a traditional "traffic calming program" or a speed hump installation policy. Instead, the City has a Residential Traffic Management Program (RTMP) to address complaints about residential traffic within the city limits. The RTMP provides a systematic method of identifying and addressing documented abuses of residential roadways (i.e. excessive speeds and aggressive driving). The RTMP offers several options to address documented concerns, up to and including some traffic calming measures (i.e. physical devices). However, the RTMP process is deliberate and some solutions require community involvement because they can result in the loss of parking, impaired emergency access or the redirection of local traffic onto other roadways. 

Engineering Department staff can meet with neighborhood representatives to develop a thorough list of concerns and possible solutions.
