  • In 2009, 11 major accidents involving pedestrians struck by cars, including 2 deaths (Danielson).
  • In 2010, 12 accidents reported on the first two days of the fall semester (Cerny)
  • Raised crosswalks installed in 2001 remain ineffective (ITE).
conclusion
Conclusion
  • Safety concerns exist at crosswalks.
  • Only a few areas are affected heavily.
  • Delays are also created by congestion.
  • Previous attempts to alleviate the issues have failed.
  • Accident reports show no sign of declining.
  • Separation of pedestrian and vehicle traffic is necessary in key locations.
the solution
The Solution

A crosswalk bridge will accomplish the following:

  • Re-route pedestrian traffic over vehicle traffic
  • Improve the safety of busy crosswalks
  • Decrease congestion and delays
recommendation
Recommendation
  • Build crosswalk bridge connecting library area to PHY area over Leroy Collins Boulevard
  • Recover project costs with a 10% increase in parking citation fees
  • Observe and collect data for two years
  • Determine if crosswalk bridges should be built in other areas
cost and funding
Cost and Funding
  • Estimated cost from Gladiator Contracting

Services, LLC is $330,475.00

  • 10% increase in citation fees will generate $100,000/yr
  • All costs recovered within 4 years
