DPW Speed Management Spring Symposium 



Event - To be announced soon

The Department of Public Works (DPW) is hosting a Speed Management Symposium in the Spring at Main Street Station, 1500 East Main Street. The Spring series will be the third of its type to be held by the City of Richmond.  The symposium is meant to educate the community and provide information and resources on new and future projects addressing safety and speed management. Despite a reduction in the overall number of crashes in the City of Richmond, severe-injury and fatal crashes are increasing.  Even in the face of concerted efforts to curtail preventable injuries, speed is the common vector in these tragic incidents. The city is working to manage speeding with tactical measures, such as, increasing traffic calming measures and improving safety for people who walk and roll, using low-cost, systemic, quick build improvements that provide immediate safety benefits through changing the built environment, reducing speed limits, and applying enforcement; the city needs community involvement. We need everyone to work together to slow down and create a culture of safety in our city and reverse the deadly trend of speeding.

Please join us, other city departments and community partners to learn about current and future projects addressing speed management. Learn what actions need to be taken as we move forward and how you can assist. Community input is needed.
