TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR COUNTY MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY AND ADVISABILITY OF IMPLEMENTING SCRAMBLE CROSSWALKS AT HIGH PEDESTRIAN VOLUME INTERSECTIONS; AND DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR COUNTY MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO PROVIDE A REPORT AND PLACE THE REPORT ON AN AGENDA OF THIS BOARD

BODY
WHEREAS, the creation of a safe and efficient transportation system is an issue of paramount importance in Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, the exploration of alternative methods to promote safety, and to reduce the potential for collisions between pedestrians and cars, is in the best interests of the public; and
WHEREAS, one such method, which has been implemented by cities such Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, and New York, is the “scramble crosswalk,” which temporarily stops all traffic at an intersection to allow pedestrians to cross in all directions at the same time, including diagonally; and
WHEREAS, installation of scramble lanes can reduce pedestrian-vehicle collisions by preventing simultaneous partial vehicle and partial pedestrian movements; and
WHEREAS, certain intersections with a high volume of pedestrian movements in Miami-Dade County may be appropriate for the installation of scramble crosswalks,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. This Board directs the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee to evaluate the feasibility and advisability of implementing scramble lanes in high pedestrian volume intersections including, but not limited to: (a) the identification of potential intersections for the implementation of scrabble lanes; (b) an estimate of the costs associated with such implementation and potential funding sources; and (c) an identification of any additional studies required in order to effectuate the implementation of the scramble lanes or to complete the analysis requested herein, as well as the costs, if any, of obtaining such additional studies.
Section 2. This Board directs the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee to provide a report to this Board within 180 days of the effective date of this resolution including, among other things, recommendations resulting from the study, and to place the report on an agenda of the Board pursuant to Ordinance No. 14-65.
