down injuries and deaths from crashes. This webinar will provide detailed case

an introduction that highlights research, guidance and key resources related to
In Scottsdale, Arizona, a HAWK beacon was installed in
conjunction with a pedestrian crossing island on Scottsdale Boulevard, a busy
commercial corridor that is also the boundary between Phoenix and Scottsdale. In
Orlando, Florida, Edgewater Drive was an early road diet; 1.5 miles of 4-lane
roadway (ADT approximately 20,000) were converted to 3 lanes plus bicycle
lanes. Presenters will discuss project design details and information about
cost and outcomes, including data related to the benefits to
adjacent businesses and property owners.
