Speed Humps

speedhumps

How do we get a speed hump on my street? Speed humps shall be considered for installation only when a location meets all of the warning criteria.

The warranting criteria are listed below:

  • The speed hump must be located on a paved, residential street (alleys are not eligible)
  • The street should have vertical curb abutting the propsed speed hump locations. Speed humps may be placed on streets with roll curb or ribbon style sidewalk after a review to determine the best possible location. In this case it may be necessary to take additional measures to prevent traffic from driving around the speed hump.
  • The posted speed limit on the street shall be 25 M.P.H. or less.
  • The speed hump shall not be located within 200 feet of a stop sign or traffic signal.
  • Streets must have a normal raised crown with a drainage along side of the street.
  • Drainage shall not be compromised due to the installation of speed humps.
  • The street is not designated as an arterial or major collector street.

Once the street has passed the warranting criteria and favorable conditions exist, the installtion must then follow a neighborhood acceptance procedure (petition form). This is to assure that a majority of the residents affected by the speed humps will support the installation. Pinal County personnel along with a neighborhood representative will determine affected residents in the area.

The location of speed humps will be determined by the neighborhood representative and the Public Works staff. The neighborhood representative must then circulate a petition of acceptance to the affected residents. The petition must confirm at least 70% approval from the affected residents to install speed humps. All residents living within 50 feet along each side of the speed humps shall approve of the installation.

If the neighborhood can show a consensus for speed hump installation, residents must submit the completed petition, along with a check made out to Pinal County Public Works to cover the installation of the speed hump along with signing and striping costs in the amount of $2500. Pinal County will then coordinate to have the speed hump installed.

If at a future date, the neighborhood wants to remove the speed hump, a petition with at least 51% approval must be submitted to Pinal County Works. If approved, the neighborhood will be responsible for removal costs. After initial installation of the speed hump, Pinal County Public Works will be responsible for all maintenance costs including signing and striping.
