Traffic Calming Program
Due to budget constraints this program is currently suspended.
The City of Concord occasionally receives complaints from its residents about speeding and cut-through traffic in neighborhoods. In response to the public's concerns, the City has developed a Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program. The program addresses the "too many cars going too fast by my house" syndrome by working closely with residents to identify existing problems, define neighborhood goals, and garner community support.
The Concord Municipal code, Section 106-251, designates the red highlighted streets in the truck route map as truck routes. Truck routes are those streets or parts of streets designated for the movement of vehicles exceeding a maximum gross weight of three (3) tons. Trucks greater than three (3) tons are prohibited from using all other streets except when necessary to travel to their destination for the purpose of loading or unloading. Passenger buses, public utility vehicles while in use in the construction, installation, or repair of any public utility, and refuse collection vehicles are exempt from using only truck routes.
