From Nicole Freedman, Director of Transportation:
- Install a driver feedback sign which will report back to drivers on their speeds. These are known to increase compliance with posted speeds and can reduce overall driving speeds.
- Refresh the crosswalks to increase visibility of pedestrians.
- Pilot pedestrian safety improvements consisting of either a pedestrian refuge island or bumpouts at the crosswalk across Waltham Street. We have asked our engineers to begin work on the designs. If successful in increasing overall safety we will make this a permanent installation in the spring.
