All Way Stop Signs Proposed at 10 Piedmont Intersections

Crosswalks and Stop Signs on the Agenda

A proposal to improve public safety at Piedmont “known problematic intersections” will be presented at the City Council meeting on Monday, July 18 at 7:30 p.m.. ┬áThe Council will consider the installation of crosswalks and “All Way Stop Signs” at 10 Piedmont intersections to improve pedestrian and traffic safety. In some cases neighbors have been asking for these safety measures for years. The 10 proposed intersections are considered the highest priority and were vetted by the Police Department and the Public Works Department.

The intersections with significant pedestrian and traffic conflicts are:

  • Magnolia, Nova and Wildwood Avenues
  • Magnolia and Park View Avenues
  • Magnolia and Jerome Avenues
  • Magnolia and El Cerrito Avenues
  • Wildwood and Prospect Avenues
  • Wildwood and Highland Avenues

The total expense is estimated at $55,857, including a 15% contingency to be funded by Measure B and BB funds. Read the staff report here.
