Fulton Street Pedestrian Scramble

A pedestrian scramble is a type of traffic signal movement that temporarily stops all vehicular traffic, thereby allowing pedestrians to cross an intersection in every direction, including diagonally, at the same time. The 1-page document below shows how to safely use a pedestrian scramble.

What is Senate Bill 1 (SB 1)?
On April 28, 2017, SB 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 was signed into law by the Governor and established a newly created “Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account” (RMRA). Funding for SB1 comes from increases in per gallon fuel excise taxes, diesel fuel sales taxes, and vehicle registration fees. RMRA will provide an estimated $54 billion statewide over the next decade to address deferred maintenance needs on both the state highway system and local road systems. RMRA will provide an estimated $1.5 billion annually to cities and counties for maintenance and rehabilitation of local streets and roads. The City of Fresno is projected to receive $3 million in the 2017-18 fiscal year and $8.8 million for the 2018-19 fiscal year.
