The City of La Crosse has adopted an official policy on traffic calming (available below). Residents or owners of a business or property wishing to pursue traffic calming measures are required to submit an application to initiate the review/study process. The traffic calming measures highlighted in the policy may include curb bump-outs, raised crosswalks or speed tables, chicanes, or traffic circles. The traffic calming process is managed by the Traffic Engineer.

The first step and fee of a traffic calming application is a review of the traffic area.

If approved for further study, a traffic calming study will be conducted (includes traffic study). A separate fee is charged for the services of conducting the actual study. If a study is completed and an Engineering Department recommendation is justified, a project may be submitted for inclusion in the Capital Improvement Budget.

Other issues—such as street or intersection closure (traffic management); STOP or YIELD signs, traffic signals, or roundabouts (traffic control); or speeding (Police enforcement)—are NOT traffic calming. Such matters should be addressed via their respective procedures and/or Departments.
