Driving Deaths Down: Proven Countermeasures that Work
The U.S. Federal Highway Administration has identified countermeasures that research has proven effective in driving
down injuries and deaths from crashes. This webinar will provide detailed case
studies of countermeasures that improve safety for vulnerable road users: the pedestrian
hybrid beacon (HAWK), the pedestrian refuge or crossing island, and road diets.
Tamara Redmon, Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Team Leader at FHWA, will provide
an introduction that highlights research, guidance and key resources related to
In Scottsdale, Arizona, a HAWK beacon was installed in
conjunction with a pedestrian crossing island on Scottsdale Boulevard, a busy
commercial corridor that is also the boundary between Phoenix and Scottsdale. In
Orlando, Florida, Edgewater Drive was an early road diet; 1.5 miles of 4-lane
roadway (ADT approximately 20,000) were converted to 3 lanes plus bicycle
lanes. Presenters will discuss project design details and information about
cost and outcomes, including data related to the benefits to
adjacent businesses and property owners.
Presenters: Jeffrey Arms, Project Manager, City of Orlando
Public Works; Susan Conklu, Transportation Planner, City of Scottsdale; Steven Ramsey, Senior ITS Engineer, City of Scottsdale; Tamara
Redmon, Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Team Leader, FHWA.
