North Avenue Unsignalized Crosswalks

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The North Ave Unsignalized Crosswalks Project includes five new unsignalized crosswalks on North Avenue at Ward Street, Killarney Drive / Village Green Drive, Poirier Place, Gosse Court, and Green Acres Drive / Cayuga Court.   Crosswalk locations are selected based on recommendations by the North Ave Corridor Study.

All crosswalks will include continental pavement markings, Pedestrian Crossing warning signs with diagonal downward arrows, advance Yield to Pedestrians signs and markings, new concrete ramps with truncated domes and tighter corner radii, and new pedestrian-scale lighting.
