FDOT To Promote Pedestrian Safety On Monroe Street
Posted: Wed 9:50 AM, Apr 09, 2014
By: Florida Department of Transportation
News Release: Florida Department of Transportation
Chipley - The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Three and 
State Safety Office in cooperation with the Department of Economic Opportunity 
are joining forces to promote "Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow" Thursday, April 10 
7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. (EDT). Safety team members, local agencies, law 
and volunteers will be providing education materials to roadway users during 
stops at the Monroe Street intersections at Gaines Street and Madison Street and
the area between.
The effort is to educate and bring awareness to motorists, pedestrians and 
of the importance of using designated crosswalks to cross on Monroe Street and 
roadway user's responsibility - whether driving, walking or biking.
FDOT will also implement pedestrian safety measures at the Monroe Street 
at Gaines Street and Madison Street beginning the evening of Thursday, April 10.
At the intersection of Monroe and Gaines streets, all left turn movements will 
be allowed during the "green arrow" display. The change is projected to be much 
for the large number of pedestrians that traverse this intersection on a daily 
as left-turning motorists will no longer be permitted to cross the path of 
utilizing the crosswalk.
An "exclusive pedestrian" mode of operation will be implemented at Madison and 
streets. All vehicle movements in all directions across the intersection will be
stopped at a red light allowing pedestrians to cross in all designated 
In addition, signs indicating "No Right Turn on Red" will be displayed to 
motorists on Madison Street from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to further reduce the 
for pedestrian/vehicle crashes.
All activities are weather dependent and may be delayed or re-scheduled in the 
of inclement weather.
