Our fair city will (hopefully) be adding some much needed greenery and pedestrian safety to its 'lil downtown core by installing pedestrian bulbouts at a few intersections.
The main roadway in the area has two 12-foot travel lanes with on-street parking allowed on both sides for a total paved street width of 36 feet. Six-foot curbside sidewalks exist along the highway and along the intersecting local streets. The two intersections that I'm most interested in improving have commercial buildings at the corners with zero-setbacks (precluding good site visibility).
If you could post an architectural rendering or a few good pics (or direct me to an applicable website), the next round's on me.
Is there a better name for these things than 'pedestrian bulbouts'?
Lastly, if you have success (or horror) stories in this area, I'd be interested to learn more......
