US-2 Pedestrian Crossings Enhancement

Airway Heights, Washington

Century West prepared the design for this Airway Heights pedestrian safety improvement project. The project enhanced 3 mid-block crosswalks on US-2 through the center of the City with overhead flashing beacon lights, lighting, signal controls and center refuge island enhancements. The project improved the visibility and safety of the crosswalks on the busy highway where there have been several vehicle-pedestrian accidents and one fatality over the past 10 years. The project was designed in accordance with WSDOT Design Manual criteria and coordinated with the local WSDOT regional office. The project was funded through a federal enhancement grant from WSDOT and Century West provided full grant administration.
