Dry Hollow traffic calming demo ends Wednesday

The eight-day temporary traffic calming demonstration project at the Dry Hollow Elementary School will be completed Wednesday, June 13. The purpose of the project was to test the effectiveness of a number of potential traffic calming measures to improve student and traffic safety during the busy drop-off and pick-up times at the school, to develop data on the viability of various traffic modifications and to give an opportunity for users and residents to provide feedback regarding the project, according to a news release from the City of The Dalles.

No decisions have been made regarding which, if any, permanent modifications might be made to improve school-related traffic conditions. If permanent modifications are proposed within the E.19 St.right-of-way, they will be presented and discussed in public workshops with users and residents prior to implementation.

The public is invited to provide feedback and input related to the demonstration project at or email, or via mail to The Dalles Public Works Department, 1215 W 1st Street, The Dalles.

For more information about the Dry Hollow School traffic calming demonstration project, please contact Dale McCabe, City Engineer, at (541) 506-2021.
