Q. Is there a maintenance program for street speed humps? The ones on Forest Hills Drive and Wayne Drive need attention. If still necessary (installed while awaiting now completed University-Covil thoroughfare), can the City do curb extensions rather than these teeth chattering speed humps?

A. Anyone can request maintenance of a city street by calling the streets division at 341-7879.

There is no funding in the city’s capital improvement program for the installation of future neighborhood traffic calming devices.

The city may install curb extensions on specific projects. Curb extensions were part of the city’s North Third Street improvement project. And they are planned for a portion of South 17th Street between Wrightsville Avenue and Chestnut Street, said Mike Kozlosky, executive director of the Wilmington Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization


Why haven’t speed humps been removed or reduced on Forest Hills and Wayne drives?

Are speed bumps to slow traffic now illegal in Wilmington?
