: SR 4 / 15th Street Pedestrian Improvements – Calhoun Expwy. to Central Avenue
R/W & CST phase in STIP. Pedestrian and related traffic operations improvements along SR 4/15th Street, between SR 28/Calhoun Expressway and Central Avenue, in Augusta. Recommendations include constructing raised islands at some intersections to provide pedestrian refuge, reconstructing existing ADA ramps to meet current standards, construct ADA compliant ramps where none currently exist, restriping existing crosswalks to extend to the curb or raised islands, installing audible traffic signals and signs at two major intersections, and constructing 20-foot wide medians at selected locations on SR 4/15th Street to restrict conflicting vehicle movements and provide a pedestrian refuge area.
