Residents are concerned about unsafe streets caused by excessive traffic volumes and illegal speeding through our families neighborhood.

The City of Port Huron acted in defiance to neighborhood association requests in the late 1980's when residents tried to stop or change the connection of Prospect Street to Thomas Edison Parkway, citing concerns that the connection of these roads would change the parkway from a quiet/tranquil park to a major artery of automobile traffic. 

Time has shown the current residents of the neighborhood that the worries and concerns of residents in the 1980's have in deed come true. Prospect Street is now a prime thoroughfare for cars to illegally speed down and around the sweeping curve/incline.

Issues with Prospect Street that need to be addressed 

  • Lack of Common sense Pedestrian Safety amenities (crosswalk)
  • Illegal speeding
  • Volume of automobile traffic
  •  Unnecessary turn lane
  •  Sweeping curves followed by straight away (encourages speeding)

 

Solutions

  • Test & implement traffic calming measure
    • Bulb outs, neck downs, armadillos, chicanes, repainting
  • Install a crosswalk
    • Street Tables, lighted crosswalk, bollards, signage
  • Implement a "Complete Streets" based solution

 

A Complete Streets approach integrates people and place in the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of our transportation networks. This helps to ensure streets put safety over speed, balance the needs of different modes, and support local land uses, economies, cultures, and natural environments.
