Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP)!
The N.A.R.T.P.C., with the assistance of a consultant, is in the process of conducting a Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP) Innovation Study in the region to identify countermeasures that address pedestrian and bicyclist safety issues that exist along Highway 141 (North Church Street) between Allen Avenue and Alpine Street as well as the intersection of Highway 91 (E. Johnson Avenue) and State Street. Find more information about the study locations --->
Highway 141/N. Church St
In December 2019, consultants for the study were able to recommendations to help improve pedestrian safety along Highway 141/N. Church Street (specifically, the corridor between Allen Ave and Alpine St). The proposed recommendations are based on data received from crash reports, traffic speed/volume, pedestrian activity, and visual observations of existing infrastructure.

Highway 91/Johnson Ave
As part of the study, a temporary pedestrian crossing has been installed at the intersection of Highway 91 and State Street. Consultants will be studying motorist and pedestrian behavior and interaction with regard to the temporary crossing. Due to several administrative delays in proceeding, the STEP study is now scheduled to conclude July 31, 2020.
