Saint Louis University to begin Grand crosswalk improvements and road diet - NextSTL

Headlines are quick hits from media outlets from Missouri and around the world. Follow the headline link for the full story. The source of this headline says:

Saint Louis University, looking to ensure the safety of its students crossing the rather busy Grand Blvd at the crosswalk are planning on adding more and better traffic signaling, more bollards, and rumble strips (textured pavement) to cue drivers to slow down.

These changes are likely driven by the increased pedestrian and automotive traffic being seen in this area, particularly with the newly finished building construction at this crosswalk and the popularity of both midtown and the central west end, to which grand acts as a connector. This crosswalk change and road diet is tied to and planned as part of the SLU Campus Master Plan.

MoBikeFed comment: This is the type of project that should become much more routine across Missouri in pedestrian-heavy areas and neighborhoods.
