- Gilbert Pedestrians & Cyclists to Get More Crosswalks
Residents who use the Gilbert trail system to get around will have more crosswalks available to them within the next few years. In mid-June the Gilbert Town Council voted to accept a $750,000 federal grant in addition to the towns own $50,000 funding in the year 2014.
Officials will be adding four mid-block crossing points along the public trail system which already has about 11 crossings. Town officials will have to follow a federal approval process for the project before construction can begin; the process can take as long as 16 months. Therefore, construction will likely not begin on these crossings until 2015.
Currently the crossings are planned for:
- Baseline Road at the Consolidated Canal, between Lindsay Road and Val Vista Drive & Eastern Canal, between Greenfield & Higley Road.
- Guadalupe Road, between Val Vista Drive and Greenfield Road.
- Elliot Road, between Val Vista Drive and Greenfield Road.
According to a town staff report, signals at the crossings will remain dark until activated by a pedestrian and will then flash yellow and turn red to allow for safer crossing. In Arizona more than 3,400 pedestrian and pedacyclist collisions were reported in 2011. Furthermore, of these accidents 5% were fatal.
If you or a loved one were harmed during a pedestrian or pedacyclist accident, contact an experienced Phoenix personal injury attorney to find out if you may be entitled to compensation for property damage, medical expenses, lost wages, and more.
