Slow Down 6th North
Rose Park Community Council's recent application for improved safety infrastructure was NOT included in the Mayor's recommended budget. The project can still be funded if City Council approves it.
The application was for 2 bulbouts and 2 Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons on the Northwest and Southwest corners of 600 North and 800 West.
Bulbouts are a traffic calming measure, primarily used to extend the sidewalk, reducing the crossing distance and allowing pedestrians about to cross and approaching vehicle drivers to see each other when vehicles parked in a parking lane would otherwise block visibility.
Rectangular Rapid Flash
Beacons (RRFB) can enhance safety by reducing crashes between vehicles and
pedestrians at unsignalized intersections and mid-block pedestrian crossings by
increasing driver awareness of potential pedestrian conflicts.
