This group field visit is a continuation of the Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP) workshop from earlier in the morning. Participants will evaluate a nearby corridor for pedestrian safety and make recommendations for improvement, if needed, based on the knowledge and skilled obtained during the morning session of the workshop. 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.
Attendance at the Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP) workshop morning session is a pre-requisite for attending this field visit.
