In a collaborative effort between the City of Springfield, Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and LTD, the pedestrian crossing projects recommended under the 2010 Main Street Pedestrian Safety Study are being implemented in order to provide safer crossing opportunities along the Main Street corridor.
The City of Springfield is the lead in overseeing the public outreach, construction and installation of the pedestrian crossings. The City of Springfield conducts stakeholder outreach in each location before construction occurs to perform analysis and determine possible mitigation measures related to the crossings.
These pedestrian crossings were identified in the 2010 Main Street Pedestrian Safety Study. The Study recommended a total of eight pedestrian crossings. After further analysis and changes in conditions, the total number was reduced to seven. Six Rapid Flashing Beacon Crossings have been installed on Main Street at 35th, 41st, 44th, 48th and 51st Streets and at Chapman Lane. One Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon crossing has been installed on Main Street near 66th Street. With these seven pedestrian crossing installations, this completes the project.
