This project will install specialized pedestrian
crossings on County Highway
16 at four school locations in the City of Shakopee. School locations include Jackson Elementary, Shakopee High School, Sun Path Elementary, and Shakopee Area Catholic School. Pedestrian crossing improvements will include Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacons (RRFB), installation of pedestrian ramps and new pavement markings, and installation of median on CSAH 16 from Sarazin Street to Independence Drive.
Purpose & Justification
The purpose of this project is to pro-actively enhance safety by reducing crashes between vehicles and pedestrians at unsignalized intersections by increasing driver awareness of potential pedestrian conflicts. Installation of centerline median will also provide another measure of safety and refuge for pedestrians at mid crossing.
