MOVING ALONG THE SIDEWALK
Separation from traffic is inadequate (the sidewalk is too close to the street).
Separating sidewalks from traffic may increase pedestrian comfort and security. A planting strip is a common buffer, and if wide enough can include street trees, rain gardens, or other landscaping. Parked cars or on-street bike lanes also separate pedestrians from traffic. Click here for additional information.
While many of the tools for separating pedestrians from traffic are design tools, planning and equity tools can also play an important role.
Under each toolbox listed below, you have been directed to categories of tools. Selecting an individual category will link you to the tools from that category that can best be used to address inadequate separation from traffic.
