Thornapple, Taylor Street Traffic Study

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. The Village is hoping to do another set of studies on a different stretch of Thornapple and on Summit Avenue at a later time. Below is a memo from Mr. Cutro explaining the data that we have received so far:
