Bumpouts considered on State

Temporary bumpouts and crossing markings

Temporary bumpouts and crossing markings

It’s hard to miss the hay-filled tubes and relocated potted plants sitting on the corners of State and Main. The temporary foliage placement and retaining walls are part of a city study to determine what impact creating a brick and concrete extension of sidewalks at the corner of the intersection will have on traffic and pedestrian flow.

The changes known as bumpouts are intended to add width to the sidewalks at the intersection so pedestrians will have a shorter path across State Street making the crossing more safe and create a traffic calming effect for vehicles making turns and approaching the intersection.
