Trumbull And Asylum Hartford, Connecticut
Lots of un-used space here. This is a perfect example where the curb could be extended to tighten turning radius and reduce vehicle speed when entering the intersection. This would cause drivers to pay closer attention to pedestrians, and cross the crosswalk at a right angle, increasing pedestrian safety.
Great place for a tactical urbanist project that adds paint and flexposts as a temporary measure to achieve the same effect, before budget can be found to make it permanent.
130-204 Pearl Street Hartford ConnecticutCorner of Pearl Street and Haynes Street, downtown Hartford. A good location to install a marked, mid-block crosswalk. Pedestrian ramps already exist on the north side of Pearl Street. Many existing businesses and landmarks are here, including an art gallery, wine bar, a theater, as well as office towers and apartment buildings, all of which generate much pedestrian traffic. This, plus the soon-to-be reopened Goodwin Hotel and its street-level storefront and retail space make a good case for elevating pedestrian access and safety here. An example of what could be can be found just one block north, at Haynes Street and Asylum Street.
