Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP) Program: Selecting Countermeasures for Uncontrolled Crossing Locations

January 30, 2018

 

FHWA hosted this webinar on January 30, 2018, to share information about a new guide and tech sheets promoting the use of countermeasures for uncontrolled pedestrian crossing locations. The Guide for Improving Pedestrian Safety at Uncontrolled Crossing Locations follows a six-step process and provides tools that help agencies select countermeasures for uncontrolled crossing locations based on roadway characteristics and pedestrian safety issues. This guide was developed as part of the FHWA Every Day Counts: Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP) program.

In addition to this new guide, the STEP program released a series of new tech sheets highlighting the safety benefits of each of the five STEP countermeasures. The tech sheets provide conceptual visualizations, best practices for installation, and cost considerations for each of the countermeasures. The new STEP guide and tech sheets are posted to the program website.
