PLANNING FOR PEDESTRIAN MOVEMENT AT INTERCHANGES

The report provides highway and traffic engineers with an understanding of the basic considerations necessary to plan effective pedestrian accommodations at urban freeway interchanges. The individual design components used to facilitate pedestrian movement are evaluated on the basis of their impacts on pedestrians and on vehicle flow. Case studies of existing interchanges illustrate common problems and potential solutions. A general approach to the design and evaluation of pedestrian facilities is suggested.
