CITY HALL — City transportation commissioners this week approved a slate of speed humps requested by residents fed up with motorists speeding through their streets.
Residents from three Glendale neighborhoods had petitioned for the speed humps, which they hoped would improve dangerous conditions.
“There are people going down that street going 65 mph,” Montrose Avenue resident George Anderson told the Glendale Transportation and Parking Commission on Monday. “We have children playing there …We have to stop this because some kid is going to get run over and killed.”
Commissioners approved four speed humps on Montrose Avenue between New York and Pennsylvania avenues, three speed humps on Allen Avenue between Victory Boulevard and Lake Street and two speed humps on Cleveland Road between Glenoaks Boulevard and Zook Drive. The humps typically cost about $3,000 each.
Transportation officials recommended all three installations.
While the installations range from north Glendale to the city’s industrial corridor and an equestrian neighborhood near the border with Burbank, all three are affected by commuters using their streets as short cuts to busier thoroughfares, officials said.
