Crosswalks - 60' Rule

Have you been in this position in Nashville - trying to cross a very busy multi-lane intersection with all the noise and whirl of traffic? I can be psychologically daunting!  

But, what if there was an island, with greenery, in the middle that you could pause at?  

“There are a few general rules of thumb,” Mongelli said. “If you have to cross 60 feet or more of pavement, you may want to put in refuge islands or other treatments that can break up that crossing. And as far as the style of marking goes, on busier intersections with multilane roadways, uncontrolled crossings or a lot of pedestrian activity, we recommend high visibility markings, like on the Beatles’ "Abbey Road" cover.”
