MK Plan for Zoning Overlay

May 13th, 2015
Appendix C

Long Range Traffic Calming Recommendations

Compliance with the Complete Streets concept, as well as compatibility with the SustainIndy bike plan are implicit with all the traffic calming measures which follow.

Specific crosswalk design markings along designated “Safe Routes” to school otherwise designated as “SR” and including the following:

  • Blinking overhead (or embedded) yellow lights
  • Flashing school zone signs on programmable timers
  • Unique school zone signage (? Mounted on the pavement)/MUTCD crossing signage
  • Unique crosswalk marking embedded in pavement and unique to Safe Routes (SR) designated pathways
  • Raised crosswalks — raised intersections at all school crossings
  • Explore State Law regarding mandatory stops at crosswalks
  • Pavement flashing lights embedded in crosswalks of school zones

Unless otherwise indicated, “curb bump out” will be located at the southwest and northeast corners of intersections. Unless otherwise specified, permeable pavers will be used; if bump out is “adopted” per MOU, may be planted as bio-swales in lieu of pavers.

Use permeable and “high albedo pavement” wherever possible.

Speed humps ONLY if supported by neighborhood petition.

Where bicycle lanes are present, mark the curbside parking spaces to avoid confusion.

Some type of shelter should be provided at bus stops .

Alley repair with particular attention between College and Broadway with use of permeable pavers or asphalt and install adequate alley lighting

38th Street

Delaware-restrict ingress by allowing only west bound traffic to enter from 38th,


Delaware Street

No left turn southbound on Delaware, traffic diverter/planter on Delaware if emergency vehicles can be accommodated

One thought on “Appendix C

  1. I’m not sure I understand why the traffic diverter/planter is required for Delaware and 38th Street. As a neighbor who lives on Delaware south of 38th Street, this would cut off access to our two block stretch coming from the east. Emergency vehicle access would absolutely have to be accommodated as I believe our nearest fire station is at 42nd and College and emergency vehicles would likely be turning left from 38th Street onto Delaware.
