With the recent recension and reintroduction of interim approval for the Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB), a lot of attention has been drawn to the wide range of enhancements available for uncontrolled pedestrian crossings. Edge-lit warning signs, circular beacons, knock-down signs, flash rates, our toolbox continues to grow, but how are these devices actually used in practice? ITE has created an Uncontrolled Pedestrian Crossings working group focused on this critical safety issue for members, with this webinar being the first effort. This webinar will feature perspectives from two local agencies, Seattle and Des Moines, as well as the Florida Department of Transportation, and how these agencies are addressing their uncontrolled crossings. This webinar is co-sponsored by the ITE Complete Streets Council and the Transportation Council.
- Learn about the wide variety of treatment options for uncontrolled pedestrian crossings.
- Learn what a variety of jurisdictions are doing to address safety at their uncontrolled crossings.
- Learn what safety research has been conducted and what additional research is needed on uncontrolled crossing countermeasures.
