South Street / Hwy 227 - Pedestrian Safety

In response to an accident on Halloween night 2006 that claimed the life of a child, Caltrans and the City hosted a town hall meeting in January to receive input from the community about safety issues on South Street. As a result of the meeting, a focus group was created to develop recommendations for Caltrans and the City to consider for enhancement of safety for pedestrians and bicycles that travel along the length of the corridor from Broad Street to South Higuera Street. The focus group was facilitated by Caltrans and was comprised of 11 community members and included participation from the City Police and Public Works Departments. The focus group included neighborhood residents, the principal of Hawthorne Elementary, the Bicycle Coalition, a visually impaired citizen and other stakeholders with specific interest in finding a solution.
