Additional site specific considerations may include traffic control devices, such as but not limited to:
Detached sidewalks provide a buffer, such as tree lawn, between the street and the sidewalk.
Road Diet (Before & After)
Road diets reduce the number of travel lanes on a multi-lane roadway and improve safety for all road users.
Attached sidewalks provide a separated space to walk within the public right of way.
Curb Radius Reduction
Tightened curb radii reduce turning speeds, shorten the crossing distance, and improve visibility.
Provide a smooth transition from the sidewalk to the street at intersections and crossings, and meet accessibility standards.
High Visibility Crosswalks
High visibility crosswalks and advanced yield markings improve visibility and safety for pedestrians
Pedestrian Refuge Islands
Pedestrian refuge islands allow pedestrians to cross one direction of traffic at a time at unsignalized locations.
Crosswalks draw attention to and define where people are crossing the street.
