Aqueduct Street: Complete, Livable and Green

Aqueduct Street is one of the first streets in Akron that will be replaced with a "complete, livable and green street" design. Click here to download a flier that explains what constitutes a complete street and how they will save the city money and increase safety for walkers and cyclists.

Speed Indicators Slow Traffic

Speed indicators and speed carts show drivers how fast they are going and the speed limit on that street. In practice, drivers tend to slow down when they see their speed flashing in their eyes. The carts also record data about speeding and traffic patterns to help police determine the best times to run radar. Residents can request speed indicators for their street, but the waiting list is long. To request a cart, contact Lt. Richard DeCatur in the traffic division at 330-375-2506 or RDecatur@akronohio.gov.

Also read how Marilyn Keith (W8), Donnie Kammer (W7) and Bob Hoch (W6) are out to curb speeding on residential streets.
