Riverside Polytechnic High School Pedestrian Safety Study

PlaceWorks prepared a pedestrian safety analysis for Riverside Polytechnic High School. The school proposed to add fields and bleachers for baseball and softball, but to reach the field from the school and vice versa, students and staff would need to cross a busy, six-lane road. PlaceWorks reviewed traffic and pedestrian counts and 10 years of collision data to identify the traffic safety issues. We identified a location for a new midblock crosswalk as well as treatments and safety measures to provide safer access.
