Traffic Calming

Burlington streets are the cornerstone of safe neighborhoods. They are our routes home, to work, and to school. Each neighborhood and street is unique, but share a common need for traffic that is slower by design rather than through enforcement. 

After more than 20 years since introducing one of the nation's first Traffic Calming and Neighorhood Enhancement programs, we are proud to introduce a streamlined Traffic Calming program that is data-driven and equitable for all Burlington neighborhoods. Working together, we will continue to maintain the quality of life that Burlingtonians expect and deserve.
