DETROIT – The Department of Public Works in Detroit announced its Speed Hump Program list for 2022. Residents have until April 27 to opt out.
The city said a small number of speed humps approved last year that were not installed because of utility or resurfacing work. Those will be among the first installed this year. This map shows all the approved locations through 2021.
The criteria that DPW considers for placing the speed humps is as follows:
- Local residential streets with speed limit of 25 mph
- Priority given to streets adjacent to active schools and parks
- DPD records of speeding and vehicle crashes
- Street used as known cut through to or from a major road
- Block housing density
- Number of school-aged children
- Resident support on the block and valid request made
The residential speed hump opt out request form is available here. The form is to be used by a block club or petitioner on a block where the city has proposed to install a speed hump and a majority of the residents on the block wish to be removed.
