Transportation Planning Grants

Down arrowLincoln Village Traffic Calming

The Town of Lincoln seeks planning and design services to develop a Traffic Calming Master Plan for “Downton” Lincoln (see map for study area), identifying key areas for safe pedestrian crossings, on-street and off-street parking areas and appropriate traffic calming treatments for this rural community. Passive, low-key traffic calming is essential to promote a safer environment for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists. Speed management through our rural village will support a healthy, walkable environment, preserving the character and function of our downtown.
