Thornapple/Taylor, Summit Street Traffic Studies

Several residents have raised concerns about traffic speed and vehicular and pedestrian safety on Thornapple Street. In order to collect some data to inform any future decisions that might be made, the Village asked our Traffic Engineer, Joseph Cutro, P.E. to conduct a traffic study counting vehicles and capturing their speeds on Thornapple Street (and on Taylor Street for comparison purposes) from March 29 to April 4; as well as on Summit Avenue from May 16th to May 22nd. Below are the two memos from Mr. Cutro explaining the data that we collected:
