I am looking for examples where a town or city with a state highway running through its downtown has contemplated or installed bump outs. Bump outs being curb extentions that lessen the distance from curb to curb for pedestrians. In my example we have four travel lanes, a center turn lane and two parking lanes. The Bump Outs will extend the curbs through the parking lanes, reducing the pedestrian distance, providing a safe haven, expanding the use of furniture ect.
As an added bonus, if anyone knows of a place where this was done where it snows alot that would be great.
