Proven Traffic Safety Countermeasures

Public Works is evaluating the feasibility of implementing the following along City Terrace Drive:

crosswalks

High-visibility crosswalks

to alert drivers of pedestrian crossings, which can help reduce pedestrian injury crashes by up to 40%.

curb extension

Curb Extensions or
"bulb-outs"

to shorten the crossing distance for pedestrians and reduce vehicle speeds.

roadway reconfiguration

Roadway Reconfiguration

to one lane in each direction, which reduces speeding and serious crashes, and allows space to accommodate new turning lanes and a dedicated space for bicyclists.
