AZ STEP Guide  - Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian

As part of the Every Day Counts (EDC-5) program on safe transportation for every pedestrian (STEP), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) published an updated “Guide for Improving Pedestrian Safety at Uncontrolled Crossing Locations” to help agencies choose countermeasures based on roadway characteristics and pedestrian safety issues. We’re creating an Arizona-specific guide so that local engineers can find examples and drawings and specs for these countermeasures.

While AZ STEP program contains information about national, state and local best practices, site specific design solutions, national standards and state laws, the document remains a guide to practitioners.  It is not intended to supersede local practices, standards or engineering judgment.

How to Use the AZ Step Guide

State laws related to pedestrian safety are listed under each countermeasure.
