Proposed speed hump locations to be marked

The county Department of Traffic Engineering will place markers along Shaker Drive and Vollmerhausen Drive over the next two weeks.

The markers will indicate proposed placements of flat-top speed humps, which are expected to be installed shortly.

Unlike speed bumps, flat-top speed humps are 3 inches high, 12 feet wide, and 22 feet long. They are designed to slow traffic while not harming cars traveling at the posted speed.

The Kings Contrivance Village Board will meet at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Amherst House, 7251 Eden Brook Drive, to recommend placement of traffic-slowing measures in the neighborhood.

The meeting is open. Residents are encouraged to attend and find out about the speed humps and where they will be placed.

A comprehensive map indicating proposed locations will be posted at Amherst House on Wednesday.

Information: 381-9600.
