Neighborhood Traffic Calming

The Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program (NTCP) uses positive methods of speed tables, geometry, and/or landscaping to alter the negative effects that traffic flow creates in a residential area. The negative effect most often occurs when motorists use a local street as a shortcut between arterials and by motorists who travel faster than the posted neighborhood speed limit. This unnecessary neighborhood thru-traffic by motorists traveling at unsafe speeds, on streets designed primarily for local access to properties poses safety hazards. 

To determine if your residential street qualifies for the NTCP complete the form below. If the project is approved, the City of Huntsville Traffic Engineering Division will provide installation of traffic calming devices using funding allocated for the NTCP each fiscal year.
