Document Description
The purpose of this project is to improve pedestrian access and safety at three Bel Air Trail crossings near Bel Air Elementary School in the area of Bay Point. The project proposes to add approximately 120 feet of sidewalk as well as 8 foot wide paved shoulders on both the east and west side of Madison Avenue. Signage and three pedestrian actuated Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacons are proposed at the trail crossings on Madison Avenue, Cleveland Avenue and Franklin Avenue. Striping will also be added to restrict parking and U-turns on Madison Avenue. These measures will increase pedestrian safety during the heavy morning and afternoon peak traffic as well as increase driver awareness on the trail throughout the day and tie into the existing trail facility. Vegetation removal and tree trimming may be necessary.
