Effective Pedestrian/Non-Motorized Crossing Enhancements along Higher Speed Corridors

MDOT desires solutions for enhanced pedestrian/non-motorized crossings along highway corridors with speeds 45 mph or greater at both signalized and unsignalized intersections. Specific treatments are desired (rapid flashing beacon, HAWK signal, etc.) but do not meet minimum warrants per various guidance documents. In response, MDOT must rely on its judgment as to what the study team believes will work for additional enhancement features. MDOT would like research on effective treatments where pedestrian/non-motorized crossing warrants are not met for the bigger enhancements on corridors with speeds 45 mph or greater.
