Notes for Figure 6H-29—Typical Application 29 Crosswalk Closures and Pedestrian Detours
- When crosswalks or other pedestrian facilities are closed or relocated, temporary facilities shall be detectable and shall include accessibility features consistent with the features present in the existing pedestrian facility.
- Curb parking shall be prohibited for at least 50 feet in advance of the midblock crosswalk.
- Parking should be prohibited in advance of midblock crosswalks. Midblock crosswalks should be avoided, when possible. See Section 3B.18.
- Audible information devices should be considered where midblock closings and changed crosswalk areas cause inadequate communication to be provided to pedestrians who have visual disabilities.
- Pedestrian traffic signal displays controlling closed crosswalks should be covered or deactivated.
- Street lighting may be considered.
- Only the TTC devices related to pedestrians are shown. Other devices, such as lane closure signing or ROAD NARROWS signs, may be used to control vehicular traffic.
- For nighttime closures, Type A Flashing warning lights may be used on barricades supporting signs and closing sidewalks.
- Type C Steady-Burn or Type D 360-degree Steady-Burn warning lights may be used on channelizing devices separating the work space from vehicular traffic.
- In order to maintain the systematic use of the fluorescent yellow-green background for pedestrian, bicycle, and school warning signs in a jurisdiction, the fluorescent yellow-green background for pedestrian, bicycle, and school warning signs may be used in TTC zones.
