This Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP) workshop is being provided in tandem with the National Walking Summit. This workshop will provide an overview of pedestrian crossing safety issues and provide resources for addressing these issues. Pedestrian treatments that will be discussed include: Rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFBs), Leading pedestrian intervals (LPIs), Crosswalk visibility enhancements, Raised crosswalks, Pedestrian crossing/refuge islands, Pedestrian hybrid beacons (PHBs), and Road Diets. The workshop includes a group field visit that will take place during the Learning-from-Place Workshops (2:15pm-3:35pm) where participants will evaluate a nearby corridor for pedestrian safety and make recommendations for improvement if needed.
Summit attendees interested in also attending the STEP Workshop will need to register for the workshop separately using MoDOT’s Learning Management System, MoDOTU.
