Pedestrian Facility Toolkit

Additional site specific considerations may include traffic control devices, such as but not limited to:

  • Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon
  • Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon
  • Raised Crosswalk
  • Bike Box
  • Pedestrian Signals
  • Bicycle Signals


  • All recommended facilities will require project specific engineering evaluation once identified for implementation.
  • All traffic control devices located on public rights-of-way must comply with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices.

Detached Sidewalk

Detached Sidewalks

Detached sidewalks provide a buffer, such as tree lawn, between the street and the sidewalk.

Road Diet BeforeRoad Diet After

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

Curb Radius Reduction

Tightened curb radii reduce turning speeds, shorten the crossing distance, and improve visibility.

Curb Ramps

Curb Ramps

Provide a smooth transition from the sidewalk to the street at intersections and crossings, and meet accessibility standards.

High Visibility Crosswalk

High Visibility Crosswalks

High visibility crosswalks and advanced yield markings improve visibility and safety for pedestrians

Pedestrian Refuge Island

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.
