Can the City do something about the number of cars going down my street?

Many streets in Wheaton carry different volumes of traffic due to how they fit into our transportation network. Some residential streets are classified as collectors, which connect local streets with arterial highways. There are also streets that seem to motorists to be more convenient to travel instead of busier streets. These are commonly referred to as “cut-through” streets. Although the City has looked into physical barriers and “speed bumps,” we have not implemented any of these measures due primarily to limiting emergency service response time. In many cases, the cut-through traffic will just move to a neighboring street and the problem will still exist. Contact us at 630-260-2065 for more information.
