Bothell’s Traffic Calming Program is part of the City’s commitment to the safety and livability of our neighborhoods. It incorporates the goals and objectives of the City’s Comprehensive Plan. It's a collaborative effort by City staff and local residents to reduce the traffic impacts on local streets. Through active participation by area residents, the City can identify the problem, plan the approach, implement the solutions, and evaluate its effectiveness.
Concept of Traffic Calming
Traffic calming is a concept that seeks harmony between automobiles and people. The program's intent is to solve the traffic problem where it exists, not move the problem to another local street.
