Impossible Crossings: Creating Safe Crossings on Key Arterials
Fri, Apr 26 11:30 am
In this panel discussion, we'll discuss Walk Bike Nashville's current campaign, called Impossible Crossings, for protected crosswalks at Nashville's known high-crash locations along our busy state arterials. The discussion will include an overview of the research conducted by Walk Bike Nashville; lessons learned by TDOT in their recent successful installation of a crosswalk at the top-crash location in Nashville, and then insights from Nashville Public Works on their upcoming plans and challenges that have arisen in adding additional crossings. The three panelists will highlight why crossings are so important for pedestrian safety, the challenges posed in retrofitting urban corridors to add crosswalks, and lessons from some recent successes in Nashville.
