Oakland experienced a network outage that continues to affect some services. While many systems have been restored, some non-emergency services are still currently impacted.

Ney Avenue Neighborhood Traffic Calming

Thank you for your participation in the Ney Avenue Neighborhood Traffic Calming Plan! Detailed design for traffic calming elements is now underway. UPDATE, JUNE 28, 2022 - Residents on Ney, Outlook, and Hillmont can expect speed hump construction in the next month. Our detailed design for traffic calming improvements has been delayed but continues to move forward with construction anticipated in Spring 2023.

Start date:
May 26, 2020
Completion date:
Jun 30, 2023


In May 2020, OakDOT partnered with area residents and the Parker Elementary School community to identify strategies to decrease traffic speeds, reduce cut-through traffic, and create a safer and more inviting environment for the Ney Avenue community. The study area is bounded by 73rd Avenue to the west, 82nd Avenue to the east, Hillmont Drive to the north and MacArthur Boulevard to the south. Solutions include speed humps, traffic circles, curb extensions, and other physical changes to the street. The plan's recommendations include near-term improvements such as speed humps and longer-term improvements that the City can deliver with paving projects or grant funding.

OakDOT staff are now at work designing traffic calming improvements, and these will be phased in over time. The first element is to repair existing speed humps and build new ones, which we expect to be complete by March, 2022.
