19th Avenue PLAT Study

19 th Avenue will transition from a two-lane to a four-lane cross section in this node. The modern suburban development pattern will involve limited access points to 19 th Avenue, with subdivisions and commercial development occurring in separate development pods. The cross sections, show in figures 15 and 16 should incorporate the South Coast Greenway on the south side to connect bicyclists and pedestrians to the overall trail network and to the connected suburban destinations to the east and west. Due to the increased laneage as well as the addition of turn lanes, pedestrian refuge islands with RRFBs should be incorporated into the intersection design to reduce pedestrian accidents.
