Everyday is Hump Day

November 2, 2008

I thought I would take a few pictures of the new speed humps that the Holyoke DPW installed on S. Elm St. right behind Sav-A-Lot at the South St. Plaza.

There was concern from the neighbors about people speeding down the street, so after a public hearing last year they were installed a few weeks ago.

Rather than a short high speed bump, they were spread out across several feet. and a gradual height.

I am impressed with the design and how effective they have become. I was concerned that after installing them people would floor the gas pedal after they went over them, but it rarely happens due to the 2nd speed hump placed further down the road.

So great job holyoke DPW!
