Did You Know...Quick Facts  

The City of Fresno and Fresno State are enhancing safety and operations for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians at Cedar Avenue/Bulldog Lane.

The City of Fresno in collaboration with Fresno State has identified the intersection of Cedar Avenue and Bulldog Lane as a candidate for a pedestrian scramble. Pedestrian scrambles are used in cities nationwide, many throughout California. A pedestrian scramble is used to completely separate motorists and pedestrians by giving pedestrians their own “phase,” or time within each cycle of the traffic signal. By separating pedestrians and motorists, the conflicts of motorists not yielding to pedestrians within a crosswalk are reduced. This is the case at Cedar Avenue and Bulldog Lane, where motorists making an eastbound left-turn from Bulldog Lane to travel north on Cedar Avenue must yield to pedestrians within the crosswalk. This conflict often creates safety challenges and delays for both pedestrians and motorists. Pedestrian scrambles are often installed at high-volume pedestrian locations such as in downtown urban areas or around college campuses. USC, UCLA, and San Jose State are all examples of campuses that have pedestrian scrambles around the perimeter of their campus. Pedestrian scrambles are also used when a high percentage of the pedestrians are crossing multiple approaches at an intersection, such is the case at Cedar Avenue/Bulldog Lane. The pedestrian scramble will allow for a new crosswalk to be installed across the southern approach at this intersection.

In 2014 the City of Fresno initially received funding for a traffic signal improvement design at Cedar Avenue/Bulldog Lane to provide a protected left-turn signal phase movement for motorists in the northbound left-turn lane. In Fall 2014, Fresno State also launched an Active Transportation Plan (ATP) to enhance walking, biking, and transit access, with improved safety, mobility, and connectivity to their campus. One initial recommendation that came from the ATP outreach was to enhance the safety, connectivity, and convenience of crossing Cedar Avenue at Bulldog Lane due to the high concentration of both housing for students and staff, as well as the athletic complex/facilities west of Cedar Avenue. Many pedestrians were crossing multiple approaches of the intersection from the southwest corner to the northeast corner, and were experiencing conflicts with motorists while crossing the northernmost crosswalk. Fresno State learned that a construction project was being funded for this location by the City, and they approached the City to see if additional improvements could be made during construction. This collaboration will benefit both residents and visitors alike with a significantly improved crossing at Cedar Avenue and Bulldog Lane.
