Safe Pathways to Schools Crosswalk Improvements -- Ignacio Boulevard and South Novato Boulevard
(Project # 16-008)
Improvements to two crosswalks on South Novato Boulevard, and two new crosswalks on Ignacio Boulevard. Improvements include high visibility signs, pavement markings and Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons. In addition, where space permits median pedestrian refuge islands--mid-point sections of sidewalk within the median where pedestrians can stop before finishing crossing the street.
- Ignacio Blvd at Country Club Drive
- Ignacio Blvd at Laurelwood East
- South Novato Blvd at Lark Court
- South Novato Blvd at Yukon Way
The proposed improvements will increase pedestrian safety at the crossing locations, as per the City's Crosswalk Policy. The signs, markings and flashing beacons increase driver awareness of pedestrians at the crosswalk, and increase driver compliance in yielding to pedestrians.
Project was completed mid-November 2016. The City Council will be asked to consider accepting the work as complete and authorizing the City Manager to sign the Notice of Completion at one of the January or February City Council meetings.
