Pedestrian Refuge Island on Peterson/Keystone, near New Retail Development
The new Dunkin and Jersey Mike’s development near Peterson Ave/Keystone Ave has led to more pedestrian crossings than ever. The new Peoples Gas facility, thriving brewery, and established Starbucks create a need for better pedestrian movements across Peterson Ave.
This item proposes to add a pedestrian refuge island at Peterson/Keystone to protect pedestrians from vehicle traffic accidents. As shown in the attached image, similar protective islands have been installed throughout Chicago. A painted crosswalk could also be considered by CDOT at this location.
