S+G Says: "Zero-Tolerance for Accidents"
Washington University in St. Louis is a prestigious and successful research-led private university with growing enrolment numbers. At the fringes of campus where the pedestrian world meets perimeter streets; the university is experiencing conflicts between pedestrians, bicyclists, cars and buses.
The practice has helped Wash U to deal with safety concerns at perimeter driveways and intersections. To improve legibility along the separated pedestrian and bicycle pathway along Forsyth Boulevard we have designed a series of path and street markings that improve legibility and to help users navigate these critical locations. As the first phase of work preceding more permanent physical change to the intersections and driveways, the work reduces conflicts and accidents between pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers of cars and heavy goods vehicles.
