The City of Pasadena Department of Transportation (DOT) is implementing a number of strategies to enhance safety for all road users during the Safer at Home Order.On April 28, DOT staff will begin placing signage at entrances to residential neighborhoods throughout the city reminding us all to slow down for neighbors who may be walking, running, or bicycling in streets in effort to maintain a safe social distance. Sign deployment will be completed citywide in May and signs will be in place until the order is lifted and public parks and recreation centers reopen to the public. All local streets will remain open and accessible to traffic, since there remains a need for essential workers to get to and from work, deliveries to be made, and residents to make essential trips.“Roughly 500 signs will be installed throughout the city, creating a network of over 100 miles of Slow Streets, and we’ll be relying on residents’ feedback to optimize placement of these signs,” said Laura Cornejo, director of transportation.DOT will also launch a Walk Local, Bike Solo cross-channel social media campaign on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter beginning April 27. This campaign will be managed through local non-profit organization Day One. This campaign will promote self-guided neighborhood tours, encourage residents to support local restaurants, and share COVID-19 health and safety reminders. For more information, visit walklocalbikesolo.com.Additionally, starting April 29, traffic signal timing along 10 major corridors will be modified to operate in “nighttime mode,” also known as “free mode” operation, all day in an effort to reduce motorist speed and enhance safety. When intersections run in nighttime/free operation, traffic is served on a first-come, first-served principal. Select signals will remain red until traffic—whether it be a motorist, pedestrian, or bicyclist—approaches the intersection. Once traffic approaches, the signal changes within seconds. Pairing the free operation with rest-in-red will require vehicles to slow down or stop at certain intersections. Modifications to the signal timing to free operation all day will be implemented along the following city corridors.1. Washington Boulevard – Lincoln Avenue to Allen Avenue2. Orange Grove Boulevard – Fair Oaks Avenue to Sierra Madre Boulevard3. Walnut Street – Raymond Avenue to Foothill Boulevard4. Colorado Boulevard – Allen Ave to Madre Street5. Del Mar Boulevard – Los Robles Ave to San Gabriel Ave6. Sierra Madre Boulevard – Orange Grove Boulevard to Hastings Ranch Drive7. Hill Avenue – Washington Boulevard to California Boulevard8. Lake Avenue – Washington Boulevard to Villa Street9. Fair Oaks Avenue – Montana Street to Villa Street10. Lincoln Avenue – Montana Street to Washington BoulevardFollowing the implementation of free operation along these corridors, DOT will determine if this type of signal operation should be extended to other corridors around the city.“This three-tiered campaign is a reminder that roads are multi-modal and are meant to be safely shared by all,” said Cornejo. “After it’s implemented, we’ll monitor and modify our efforts as needed.”Stay connected to the City of Pasadena!
