This presentation is part of the Designing and Engineering for Safety and Connectivity session.
Minneapolis has a strong commitment to providing safe and convenient infrastructure for people that walk. Over the past few years, Minneapolis has explored several small scale, temporary, and demonstration projects to test street crossing improvements, particularly at unsignalized intersections. The City is now in the process of creating a capital Pedestrian Street Crossing Program. The focus of the program will be hardscape elements of street crossings, including but not limited to, pedestrian bumpouts, center medians, and intersection realignments. Other important features include high visibility durable crosswalk markings, ADA accessible curb ramps, Accessible Pedestrian Signals (APS), and active warning beacons.
