Neighborhood Traffic Management Program

The City of Chattanooga is continually striving to strengthen and protect its neighborhoods. Residential, and neighborhood streets should be people-oriented. While useful as secondary routes for the larger grid network, they should be designed and enforced as low-speed streets. The Chattanooga Department of Transportation administers the Neighborhood Traffic Management Program to assist residents in dealing with speeding in their neighborhoods. High speeds are dangerous for the community's safety and directly affect property values and contribute to crime.

The Neighborhood Traffic Management Program has expanded to version 2.0. The original NTMP relied mostly on speed tables, which are still effective tools to control speeds. When speed tables are not the best option for the situation, NTMP Version 2.0 is implemented, which utilizes public engagement in design and needs assessment. The Department of Transportation expands its toolkit with NTMP 2.0 to solve problem areas in the community through a wide variety of traffic calming measures such as traffic circles, chicanes, raised crosswalks, and intersection modification. Our new tool kit also focuses on traffic calming in neighborhood centers, commercial, and mixed-use areas by incorporating on-street parking, bicycle lanes, and other traffic calming tools.

Please review the NTMP 2022 Program Guidelines pdf and contact CDOT's Ben Harmon at 423.643.5952 for an area review and petition map.

​Speed tables, traffic circles, and other traffic calming measures have been installed on over 210 streets as of October 2022.
