Integrate Time and Space
Reconfigure intersections through signalization as an alternative to widening them, to address delay or congestion. This helps in reducing speeds between junctions, prioritizing transit, and increasing safety. Include transit-priority, pedestrian, and cycles leading intervals, and manage left turns with dedicated signal phases. See: Signs and Signals.
Increase Pedestrian Space
Increase pedestrian space while redesigning intersection geometry, consolidating spaces in logical and usable areas. Use interim plazas and low-cost elements and materials to quickly enhance public life and reduce safety concerns. See: Sidewalk Extensions and Pedestrian-Priority Spaces.
Start with Vulnerable Users
Design safe infrastructure at intersections by starting with the needs of the most vulnerable users. Use existing pedestrian behaviors and desire lines to guide design. Provide safe and accessible sidewalks, crossings, and refuge areas for pedestrians, and dedicated facilities and protected intersections for cyclists. Reduce vehicle speed by including traffic calming strategies. See: Designing Streets for People and Speed Management.
