Pavement marking in place to help with traffic calming

Oak Park residents may have noticed new beige pavement markings recently installed at several locations in town.

The pavement markings are meant to act as traffic calming safety improvements and create curb extensions or bump outs to narrow the roadway in an effort to slow traffic and reduce the crossing distance for pedestrians.

Public Works crews will be installing flexible delineator posts along the edges of these areas to further define these spaces.

Should these improvements be effective at calming traffic and improving safety, they will be replaced with traditional concrete curbs, sod and sidewalks as part of future street resurfacing projects.
