Safe Commute Routes to School

San Marcos, CA — Stack Traffic Consulting provided consulting services for the San Marcos Middle School Safe Route To School Project in the City of San Marcos, CA. The project included several improvements to enhance the safe access of students and parents to the school grounds. The specific improvements included: a new traffic signal, ADA pedestrian ramps, sidewalk, a new raised median in the school parking area for improved traffic circulation, new sidewalk and a retaining wall for increased sidewalk capacity adjacent to the school, new crosswalks, new CAMUTCD compliant signage, and pedestrian railing/fencing for the established route guidance. There was also a communication component to the project which included specifying a Layer 3 enterprise switch for the City and configuring it on the City Traffic Management Center network, and installing fiber optics at the intersection for traffic data and video communication.
