Midblock Crossing Improvements

In 2014 the city prepared a Pedestrian Safety Action Plan in an effort to help guide and inform the city’s other pedestrian safety improvements. The City has begun implementing the recommendations of the Pedestrian Safety Action Plan with additional improvements planned over the next few years.

  • Surrounding Land Use
  • Posted speed
  • Number of Lanes
  • Vehicle Volume
  • Pedestrian Volume
  • Day and Nighttime Visibility
  • American Disabilities Act (ADA) Compliance
