Neighborways are local streets that offer a safer and more comfortable route alternative to busy arterial streets by prioritizing pedestrians and other non-vehicular traffic. Neighborways typically run through residential neighborhoods, using context-appropriate traffic calming tools to keep speeds slow and safe for all users. They aim to connect neighborhoods for more vulnerable users and feature wayfinding signage and pavement markings to assist in their navigation.
Neighborways use the same guidelines as the Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program to determine if a street is eligible. Please see that page for more information, including an application to request traffic calming. You may specify that you think your street is a good candidate for a Neighborway in the Traffic Calming application.
