D6 District-wide Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Program
A&P Engineers provides in-house support services at the District VI Traffic Operations Office as part of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Program. Services include investigation of citizen requests for mid-block pedestrian crossings; pedestrian mobility enhancements, such as high emphasis crosswalks; and “count-down”-type pedestrian signals with pedestrian crossing signs. 96 requests were investigated in 2014 and improvements were programmed or implemented through “push button” construction contracts at over 30 locations district-wide. The program also includes the performance of Road Safety Audits (RSA) to address Pedestrian and Bicycle safety.
