Changes at Bigelow/Bigelow/Bayard Intersection coming
Changes to the stoplight/crosswalk at Bigelow, Bigelow and Bayard intersection are coming. The goal is to improve safety for pedestrians crossing at the intersection.
Changes will be made in early summer, and include:
- Designated right and left turn lanes coming down the hill on Bigelow will be clearly marked
- At lower part of Bigelow (coming down from High School) 3 – 4 parking spaces on the right side of Bigelow will be removed
- Crosswalk signals will have a leading pedestrian indicator (LPI) which grants pedestrians a 3 second head start over the vehicles. This leads to increased pedestrian visibility and has been shown to decrease vehicle/pedestrian conflicts.
