Public Meeting to Discuss Pedestrian Safety Improvements


October 27, 2016

Pedestrian safety improvements are currently being designed for Oak Ridge Turnpike (SR 95) at Tulane Avenue and East Division/Tennyson Roads. These upgrades are necessary to improve accessibility and provide a safe transportation link for people in the area.  

The intersection improvements will include:
  • Traffic signal and pedestrian feature upgrades
  • New accessibility ramps
  • Longitudinal crosswalks
  • Countdown pedestrian signals with push buttons
  • Radar vehicle detection
  • Relocation of a mast arm signal pole
  • New sidewalks (which will be connected to the existing ones) 
Members of the community are encouraged to attend a project overview and public input session on Thursday, November 10, 2016, at 4:00 p.m. It will be held in the City of Oak Ridge Central Services Complex located at 100 Woodbury Lane.  

If you are unable to attend the meeting and wish to comment on the project, please email your comments to PubWorksDis@oakridgetn.gov.
