Planned improvements

All seven intersections will be upgraded with:

  • New pedestrian curb ramps that meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards
  • New curbs, sidewalks, and trails at the crossing locations
  • Added high-visibility trail crossing markings

Other safety improvements include:

  • Upgraded curb extensions at James, Irving, Humboldt, and 5th avenues to shorten trail crossing distances and enhance visibility of the trail crossing.
  • A raised trail crossing at 5th Avenue to slow people driving and encourage them to yield to Greenway users.
  • Updated overhead pedestrian crossing beacons (flashing signals) at 28th Street and Minnehaha Avenue.
  • New raised medians at Minnehaha Avenue intersection to provide a protected refuge area for Greenway users.
