Milford City Council will review a final concept plan of the South Walnut Street Traffic Calming and Bike/Pedestrian Improvement Project from Century Engineering at their monthly workshop on Wednesday, August 23.  Public comments are not permitted at Council Workshops.  Council will then vote on the plan after hearing public comments at the Monday, August 28 City Council Meeting.  The public is invited to view the plan online at and make public comments at the City Council meeting (August 28) beginning at 6pm.

The final concept plan is a culmination of two public open houses, one in December 2022 and the second in April 2023, where the public provided feedback on the proposed plan.

The City hired Century Engineering, Inc. to complete this traffic calming study, which analyzed traffic conditions, identified improvements for traffic calming/speed reduction, identified gaps in the pedestrian network and developed a recommended concept plan for bicycle, pedestrian, and road improvements to enhance the S. Walnut Street corridor (between McCoy Street and Maple Ave).  The final concept plan will be used to develop construction plans for future City capital projects.
