Can I get a crosswalk at a specific location?

Many locations for crosswalks are called out in the Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan, so first check that document to see if your area of concern is listed. Constructing a crosswalk requires considering a number of criteria for eligibility:


  1. A crosswalk must connect to sidewalks or landing spaces on both sides of the street. That means that in some locations, sidewalk construction would need to take place before a crosswalk can be added.
  2. Crosswalks require adequate sight lines for both pedestrians and drivers. Encouraging crossing in locations where drivers do not have enough time to see and respond would make pedestrians less safe, not more.

 To advocate for crosswalks in locations that meet the eligibility requirements, residents can email the Transportation Advisory Committee, Bicycle Advisory Committee, or Department of Public Works.
