This project created mid-block pedestrian crossings that utilize advance street signs, high emphasis crosswalks, Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacons, and adaptive lighting to alert drivers to the presence of a pedestrian crossing the road. To accommodate a bicycle lane and reduce vehicle speeds, lane widths were reduced. In addition, raised landscaped medians were added to improve access management.
