Improve pedestrian networks.
Countermeasures for strategy 4 were identified in the following categories.
Policy—levels of service
Develop policies to analyze pedestrian levels of service, delay, and network connectivity as part of project development. Develop and disseminate a complete streets policy support guide with model policy and implementation information for local agencies and MPOs
Ensure opportunities for crossing arterials/highways safely. Consider the overall pedestrian network and travel desire lines. Consider setting standards or guidelines for the distance between safe crossings given land uses, densities, and roadway function. Provide safe crossings of freeways.
Create connected pedestrian networks and remove barriers to pedestrian travel (pedestrian over/underpasses and crossings to overcome physical barriers).
