Serpentine design refers to the use of a winding street pattern with built-in visual enhancements through a neighborhood, which allow for through movement while forcing vehicles to slow. The opportunities for significant landscaping can be used to create a park-like atmosphere.
Such designs are usually implemented with construction of a new neighborhood
street or during reconstruction of an existing street corridor. This type
of design can be more expensive than other traffic-calming options and needs
to be coordinated with driveway access.
