Clark County — Vancouver is turning to residents to help with the Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program. The program, in its third year, will allocate approximately $170,000 for traffic-calming projects. A $100,000 grant will go toward the installation of new curb ramps, making them compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, as well. The program will create two tracks for this year: proposals that contain only signing and striping elements, and project proposals that include physical traffic-calming devices, such as speed cushions, pedestrian refuge islands, curb extensions, radar feedback signs or trees along streets. The city is also accepting proposals for streets in need of new ADA curb ramps.
