Your Mother Was Right…

intersectionsA mission of the Energy Corridor District is to enhance the District's quality of life and sense of place, which includes implementing increased mobility and protecting public safety. The District strives to improve mobility for all modes of transportation including walking, cycling, transit, automobiles and trucks.

With the goal of becoming a more pedestrian and bicycle friendly place, our transportation program looks at Intersections with high pedestrian use and proposes improved intersection design, pedestrian count-down signals and advanced warning signage to help reduce the chance of accidents between the different transportation modes.

When pedestrians and cyclists cross roadways at delineated locations, drivers of vehicles are more likely to be aware of their presence. However, it's important that pedestrians and cyclists should not develop a sense of greater protection simply because they cross a roadway at a defined crosswalk or when the pedestrian signal indicates the time is right to cross.

Following the national trend, the Energy Corridor is experiencing increased levels of outdoor recreation and pedestrian and cycling commuting. Pedestrians, cyclists and drivers of vehicles must recognize that all users of public transportation corridors have a responsibility to be mindful of others and exercise what your mother and grandmother taught you as a child, "look both ways before crossing the street".
