Abstract: This document provides guidance in conjunction with the “Traffic Calming” chapter of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Design Manual-2 (DM-2). Through a data-driven analysis and in partnership with PennDOT District 6-0 and the City of Philadelphia, arterial typologies were developed to aid with identifying speed management strategies appropriate for the City of Philadelphia’s arterial road network. The guidance provided is intended to augment and, in some cases, supersede guidance provided by DM-2, as provided for by DM-2, which outlines the process for local jurisdictions to develop locally appropriate traffic calming guidance.

Key Words: Speed Management, Crash, Safety, Traffic Calming, PennDOT, Philadelphia
