This project will place flashing beacons, replace crosswalk delineation and signs in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties at various locations on Routes 1, 9, 68, 129, 152, and 183.
Purpose: The purpose of the project is to comply with The Crosswalk Enhancement Policy Directive and 2014 CA MUTCD which states that the minimum crosswalk safety enhancement should be used to enhance existing marked crosswalks that cross uncontrolled roadways on the State Highway System where the speed limit exceeds 40 mph and the roadway has 4 or more lanes of travel with an ADT of 12,000 vehicles per day.
Need: To increase pedestrian safety at existing marked crosswalks by enhancing the driver’s awareness of the crossing(s).
