Traffic Programs

Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program

The city's Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program aims to respond to resident concerns regarding speeding and cut-through traffic on residential (local and collector) streets and improve the quality of life in neighborhoods using a set of traffic calming strategies.

Strategies range from enforcement and educational actions to a more comprehensive physical infrastructure approach.

Traffic calming tools include permanent speed radar signs, speed cushions, mini roundabouts, full intersection closures, and others, and are applied based on the local roadway and land use context and specific project need.

The primary focus of the program is to verify eligible projects that are well supported by the community and that properly address identified safety criteria.

Traffic Control Plans (TCPs)

A traffic control plan is a technical diagram with information about how to occupy the public right of way. The regulations for traffic control plans are set forth in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and the city of Aurora specifications. There are many private companies who design and implement traffic control plans in the city of Aurora.

Traffic Control Plans are needed as part of the permitting process when your project impacts the public right of way. If your project does not impact the public right of way (streets, sidewalks or alleys), no traffic control plan is needed. You do not need a traffic control plan for private streets.

Curb Cut/Driveway Requests

If you want to put in a new driveway (curb cut) for your property, contact the Engineer on Call (EOC) at 303.739.7575 for general review of code requirements like type of street accessing with request (local ok proceed further, collector or arterial not likely to be allowed); general sight distance considerations; etc. The EOC will get more detailed information including contact information and refer to the Traffic Engineering Department if further review is required. Traffic Engineering staff will contact the resident regarding their request within two weeks or less. Permits and other documents are also likely to be required for installations of this type.
