Pop-up demonstrations just around the corner
The first of four pop-up traffic calming demonstrations will take place this Saturday, October 10, in Dutchtown on the 3100 block of Gasconade Street. Come out and see proven methods for making safer streets. Representatives from the Healthy Eating, Active Living Partnership, including Trailnet staff, will be at the corner of Compton Avenue and Gasconade Street from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to foster discussion with the community.
Trailnet is currently seeking volunteers for all four events. Those interested can sign up for a time slot below.

Trailnet has been working to compile a database of our projects aimed at demonstrating methods to slow traffic, increase pedestrian and bike activity, and decrease accidents in the area. The collection of projects make up what we are calling our Traffic Calming Library.
Below is a sneak peek at how the Traffic Calming Library is coming together. The painted tires will be used in our pop-up demonstrations.
