US-1 Pedestrian Safety Assessment

Mariposa Court is a popular crossing point along US-1 for students from the University of Miami. The intersection is the location of 6 pedestrian incidences in the last 15 years, two of them fatalities. KAI led the development of short- and long-term safety improvements at this, and other key locations along US-1. Recommendations focused on physical pedestrian features such as crosswalks; pedestrian signal heads; pedestrian push buttons; and alternative measures such as adjusting pedestrian operation, and the provision of additional lighting.
