There are city locations where safety priorities can be addressed through alternative street design measures that offer improvements when funds are lacking for more extensive upgrades. Creating safer shoulders or other alternative low cost walking treatments by widening and paving the shoulders in places where sidewalks cannot be provided has been shown to reduce pedestrian crashes by 71%. The Fixing Our Streets funding for Safer Shoulders will be used in partnership with the Bureau of Environmental Services.
Scoping for this project is underway. Check back soon for additional details.
