Overview

Join the Federal Highway Administration, Caltrans and Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority  for a rundown of some current efforts to promote pedestrian safety at various levels. Bring your questions and suggestions!

 

FHWA: The Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP) program offers several tools and resources for agencies to identify treatments or countermeasures to improve pedestrian crossing safety.  STEP has developed guidance, "FHWA Guide for Improving Pedestrian Safety at Uncontrolled Crossing Locations," based on national best practices and a summary of recent research. This session will describe how agencies and non-traditional safety partners can use the Guide to inform their options for improved pedestrian safety.

VTA The Countywide Pedestrian Access to Transit Plan is the first plan in its kind that looks at pedestrian condition in a countywide level in Santa Clara County. The Plan identified 156 capital projects within 12 focus areas. One implementation strategy that is identified in the Plan is to seek public-private partnership to advance these projects. Since Santa Clara County experiencing significant land use changes and new developments, it is important for VTA to leverage our funding and look for opportunities to implement these projects in partnership with private sector or local governments and in conjunction with new changes and new developments in the county.
