A CT Traffic Signal Academy Workshop
A Leading Pedestrian Interval (LPI) typically gives pedestrians a 3-7 second head start when entering an intersection with a corresponding green signal in the same direction of travel. It is for use with concurrent pedestrian phasing, where pedestrians cross with the parallel vehicle phase, and can reduce
pedestrian-vehicle collisions by as much as 60%.
The roundtable discussion will provide details on the difference between exclusive and concurrent
pedestrian phasing. Participants will also learn what
a leading pedestrian interval is and how Connecticut communities are using the technology to enhance pedestrian safety at signalized intersections.
Representatives from municipalities, the CT Department of Transportation and consultants will share their experiences, lessons learned and how to get started.
