Main Street Pedestrian Crossings

In a collaborative effort between the City of Springfield, Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and LTD, six 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 six additional pedestrian crossings were identified in the 2010 Main Street Pedestrian Safety Study. The Study recommended a total of eight pedestrian crossings. To date two crossings have been installed by ODOT and two crossings have been installed by the City of Springfield.
