Safe Routes to School: Pinehurst School Traffic Safety Project

Updated January 29, 2015

Get Involved

A series of community meetings have been held to develop strategies to lower vehicle speeds, reduce collisions and make it safer and easier to walk and bike to the new Hazel Wolf K-8 School in the Pinehurst neighborhood.

Issue Identification Meetings – May 2014

Two community meetings were held in May 2014 to review existing conditions and traffic data, discuss toolbox of potential improvements, and hear concerns and ideas from neighbors and the school communities. At these meetings we heard requests for more sidewalks near Pinehurst School, traffic calming on arterial and neighborhood streets, and more marked crosswalks.

Conceptual Designs – Summer and Fall 2014

SDOT developed a series of proposal including new sidewalks, crosswalks, and restriping Pinehurst Way to change the street from two travel lanes in each direction to one lane in each direction.

Design Review Meetings – January 2015

Design proposals were presented at community meetings in January, 2015
