Councilmember Joe LaCava issues statement on Governor Drive Traffic Calming and Safety


From the Office of Councilmember Joe LaCava as posted on Nextdoor regarding Governor Drive Traffic and Safety: Thank you to everyone who has written to my office, and the 84 individuals attending last night’s UCPG traffic subcommittee meeting, regarding the ​potential restriping of Governor Drive from the west end to Radcliffe Drive, a proposal ​associated with completion of the Standley Park improvements and the future pipeline replacement project.

I am ​working with City staff to ​ensure that any changes to Governor Drive are safe, preserve emergency access, and do not interfere with school pick-up and drop-off. I am committed to making Governor Drive safe for everyone. Any changes to the current configurations would not be implemented until after the City completes the replacement of existing sewer and water lines which is not slated to start until 2022.

I will also work with city staff to ensure that Governor Drive is a safe corridor for the community during the pipeline replacement construction. I encourage you to participate in discussions hosted by the University City Planning Group and the UCCA. Please also reach out to my University City representative, Kaitlyn Willoughby, with any questions, comments, or concerns at
