Pedestrian Criss Cross Online Survey
June 19 - September 30, 2017
12:00am - 11:59pm
Take online survey below.
A new type of crosswalk is being piloted on Perron Street to further enhance pedestrian safety. The crosswalk, called a Pedestrian Criss Cross, started May 26 at the intersection of Perron Street and St. Anne Street.
This special type of crosswalk separates pedestrian and vehicle movements by stopping vehicles in all four directions while pedestrians cross the street in any direction they choose – even diagonally.
The Pedestrian Criss Cross pilot is in response to safety concerns the City has received from pedestrians regarding near misses or drivers failing to appropriately yield to pedestrians at this intersection. The goal is to enhance pedestrian safety and prevent any incidents from occurring at this downtown intersection which has a higher volume of pedestrians.
How It Works
- Pedestrians must push the Walk Button to activate the Walk Symbol; otherwise it will not come on.
- Wait for the Walk Symbol to come on BEFORE entering the crosswalk.
- Once Walk Symbol lights up, cross the road in any direction (parallel to the road or at an angle).
- Motorists are allowed to go forward or turn left or right on a green light only.
- All vehicles must stop on a red light. No turns, including right-hand turns, are permitted on red.
The pilot project will be evaluated until the end of September 2017. The City encourages pedestrians and motorists who have experienced the changes to this intersection to provide feedback through the survey. Deadline: September 30.
Or call or email the Construction Help Desk:
All feedback received will be used to evaluate the new style of crossing and its contribution to pedestrian and traffic safety.
