RECENT CITY NEWS

Maple Restriping considered July 11th 6.17.16 restriped WmapleConsideration of the West Maple Road trial restriping project will be conducted during the July 11th City Commission meeting which begins at 7:30 p.m. in Commission Room 205 at City Hall. The 4 lane road from Cranbrook to Southfield was restriped to 3 lanes in October 2015, and the City has been evaluating the changes based on five criteria: average speeds, traffic volumes, cut-through traffic, travel time comparisons, and accident data. The Commission will review pre- and post-conversion data before making a final determination on the lane configuration for the road. West Maple Road is scheduled for road resurfacing as part of the City’s on-going infrastructure improvement program. For more information on the project, go to: www.bhamgov.org/westmapletrial.
