Honolulu Complete Streets Design Manual Update: Crossing Treatments at Uncontrolled Locations
In September 2016, the City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Transportation Services, with the help of SSFM and other transportation sub-consultants, published Honolulu’s first Complete Streets Manual. The Honolulu Complete Streets Design Manual sets forth design standards specific to Honolulu and provides guidance to planners, designers, and engineers to incorporate Complete Streets principles and features into projects in the City right-of-way. The Manual recommends multi-modal design solutions to increase mobility, improve road safety, and create sustainable communities and includes guidelines for uncontrolled crosswalks.
This latest update to the manual incorporates the FHWA’s 2018 “Uncontrolled Pedestrian Crossing Guidelines” which includes Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons or RRFB’s. DTS has asked SSFM to update the original 2016 crosswalk guidance at uncontrolled locations to include RRFB and other treatments. DTS and SSFM will be presenting the revised guidance dated 4/13/22.
