Questions regarding streets, traffic signals, and parking restrictions:
|Why doesn't the City use left turn signals at all intersections along Broadway and Hampden?|
|Answer: The City's Traffic Division uses the Federal Highway Administration's guidelines for left-turn phasing. These guidelines use vehicle volumes, traffic delays, and accident history to determine appropriate locations for left turn signals.|
|Why aren't speed bumps installed to deter speeding?|
Answer: Tests of speed bumps raise questions about their safety and their effectiveness:

|Answer: The City plows primary grid streets first, followed by secondary grid streets. See the Snow Removal page for a map and further details.|
|Why aren't paving projects done at night?|
