Pedestrian Crossing Control Guide Update
Chair: Heide Schlegl
PROJECT STATUS (as of June 2012)
The Pedestrian Crossing Control Guide has been approved by the Chief Engineer's Council and is being prepared for publishing. It is expected to be available this summer for sale via the TAC bookstore.
The first steering committee meeting was held in Ottawa on April 8, 2010during theTAC Spring meetings. This was a working meeting where the project goals and objectives, proposed methodology and tasking, work schedule and expectations for deliverables were reviewed. At this meeting a draft list of pedestrian safety control devices was reviewed, and the consultant provided steering committee members with a draft table of contents for the updated manual.
A teleconference was held on May 11th, and at this time the committee reviewed the draft survey questions prepared by the consultant for the Jurisdictional Survey on Pedestrians Crossing Control, and the jurisdictions that would have this survey sent to them was also reviewed. The jurisdictional survey has since been sent out and summarized by the consultant. At this time the consultant has provided the steering committee members with a 40% Draft Final Report and this will be discussed at the next teleconference on July 15, 2010.
The consultant delivered a detailed presentation at the TOMSC meeting on September 11, 2011 in Edmonton that summarized the project deliverables. TOMSC was asked to vote on approving the reports, and committee members voted unanimously on approving the reports and the MUTCDC updates.
The new Pedestrian Crossing Control Guide, the Knowledge Base Technical Report and the related MUTCDC updates were all submitted to the Chief Engineers' Council for review by letter ballot on October 17. The deadline for ballots is November 18. As soon as the document is approved in mid-November, the PSC will be advised. The Chief Engineers' Council may offer a few comments that the PSC and consultants will have to review.
