Since 2009, five people were killed and 28 people were severely injured traveling on Temple Street between Beverly Blvd and Beaudry Ave. Come learn about and provide feedback on planned traffic safety improvements.
This comprehensive safety improvement project includes new speed feedback signs, crosswalks with flashing signals, protected left turns, and leading pedestrian intervals. The project will reallocate the street from two vehicle lanes in each direction to one lane in each direction with a center turn lane and bicycle lanes in each direction. The project is expected to reduce traffic on neighborhood streets, reduce speeds and increase safety for everyone traveling on the street.
Work is expected to begin in 2017.
