Residents of Hollow Road are angry at motorists racing up and down their once-quiet side street to avoid congestion on Austin Bluffs Parkway, Academy Boulevard and North Carefree Circle.
Here is a map of the neighborhood from www.FlashEarth.com:
Hollow Road residents did everything right in their effort to get help . . . they contacted all the right people at Colorado Springs City Hall and made their case. In fact, Hollow Road was declared the street most in need of “traffic calming” devices to discourage future short-cut artists.
Then they learned there is no money for the $60,000 project.
Here is the list of projects, ranked in the order of their priority: traffic-list.pdf
The city also has a brochure describing its traffic calming which you can read here: tchandbook.pdf
There also is a petition and an application form. See them here:
The city traffic engineering department hopes to secure funding in 2009 for the project.
