Crosswalk Policy Guide - an ITE Informational Report
A connected, safe, and comfortable transportation network for people walking, bicycling, and using assistive devices is necessary to provide an equitable transportation system for all people, regardless of age, ability, race, income, or mode of travel. Walking and bicycling are sustainable forms of transportation that provide healthy, affordable, and enjoyable options for daily travel.

The safety, accessibility, and mobility of pedestrians are at the core of why agencies seek to create a crosswalk policy. The intent of this document is to provide guidance to agencies for the development of crosswalk policies. It seeks to improve consistency in crosswalk policy development with the goal of improving the safety and accessibility for some of our transportation system’s most vulnerable users. This guide provides practitioners with a consolidated resource for use in the development of crosswalk policies. It includes a comprehensive overview of information and direction to primary source material and will allow each agency to create a tailored crosswalk policy for its own jurisdiction. This Crosswalk Policy Guide includes steps and processes necessary for an agency to develop a crosswalk policy. This includes items such as the following:

• Appropriate stakeholders to engage
• Elements needed for a policy
• Inventory of existing facilities
• Identification of candidate locations
• Liability considerations
• Design guidance
• Information regarding the treatment selection process
• Implementation and phasing considerations

This guide does not include recommended best practices for treatment selection. However, the guide provides direction to resources and research on selecting context-appropriate treatments.
