Due to its central location, the street has the potential to transform the surrounding neighborhoods. Redesign this street to serve needs of all street users and increase its overall capacity.
Remove two travel lanes in each direction and provide accessible and wider sidewalks to support safe pedestrian movement and commercial activity.
Provide refuge islands, mark pedestrian crossings, and improve markings to make crossings safer and shorter.
Introduce a dedicated transit lane in each direction to increase transit capacity and efficiency.
Offset boarding islands provide for safe and efficient boarding and alighting for transit riders while reducing vehicle speeds at the bus stops.
Add a mid-block crossing to facilitate the access to the boarding islands on each side of the center-running transit only corridor and shorten the crossing distance by providing safe refuge islands for pedestrians.
Offset the travel lane in correspondence to the boarding island to reduce speeds and improve motorists’ yielding behavior.
Implement cycle tracks on each direction and planted buffers to provide safe facilities for cyclists.
Add trees and green infrastructure on the sidewalks and the medians to provide shade, reduce noise, improve air quality, and support stormwater management. See: Green Infrastructure.
Making the street more aesthetically appealing and comfortable for pedestrian use can attract businesses and help to regenerate the district.
