Roseburg Pedestrian Studies

KAI recently completed two studies for the City of Roseburg, evaluating the potential for new pedestrian crossings along two major roadways within the city.

Pine Street Pedestrian Crossings: This Study focused on improving access to a local elementary school across the Stephens Drive/Pine Street couplet. Pine Street represents the southbound leg of the couplet and currently has an average daily traffic (ADT) of approximately 6,400 vehicles.

Stephens Drive: KAI conducted a study focused on improving access to local transit service across Stephens Drive, which has a similar cross section as SW Walker Road and currently has an ADT of approximately 15,530 vehicles.

Both studies required an evaluation of various pedestrian crossings treatments following the methodology described in the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 562 Improving Pedestrian Safety at Unsignalized Crossings. The Washington County’s Mid-Block Crossing Policy approach was also followed in the preparation of these studies. Both studies resulted in the selection of multiple sites along each roadway appropriate for pedestrian crossings and site-specific crossing treatments, designed to enhance driver’s awareness of pedestrians at the crossings, as well as provide safe and convenient locations for pedestrians to cross the street.
