About the Project
The City of Syracuse Department of Engineering is seeking public input regarding the City’s Pedestrian Safety Action Plan (PSAP). The City of Syracuse is fully committed to developing a pedestrian safe environment throughout the city. The City has approximately 80 uncontrolled pedestrian crosswalks and 300 signalized intersections within the city limits. The PSAP Project will bring all uncontrolled pedestrian crosswalks within the city limits up to the standard treatment as identified in the New York State Department of Transportation PSAP guidance. The standard treatment consists of warning signage at the crosswalk, advance crosswalk warning signage, and crosswalk pavement markings. Some locations will receive additional treatments such as rectangular rapid flashing beacons to further enhance crosswalk safety.
The pedestrian safety improvements at approximately 62 signalized intersections will consist of new bi-modal pedestrian signal head with countdown timers where needed, accessible pedestrian signals, signage revisions or additions and crosswalk pavement markings. The traffic signals in the central downtown business district where pedestrians are most prevalent will be addressed first and then additional signalized intersections will be addressed as budget allows.
