How does the City plan to address cut-through traffic in the neighborhoods?

By placing signage out as far as 128th & Meridian, Military Road and SR162, we hope that many drivers will alter their routes at those junctions rather than continue along Shaw to the forced detour. For most folks who find themselves at the actual road closure, it will make more sense for them to use the more-or-less straight shots of either 39th/5th or Meridian to reach their destinations rather than try winding their way through the residential areas. 

We will try to discourage cut-through traffic through the neighborhoods off of Shaw. We understand the concerns of those who live near the project and we too want to limit negative impacts such as speeding.
