What's new. Results of a median concepts survey of residents were presented to city council on Dec. 11. Ideas from the 27 submissions will be refined by professional landscape architects and traffic planners with options presented to council in January 2019. Public meetings are planned in February to get stakeholder input on the 90 percent design report, and to discuss construction timing.
Managing pedestrian movements will improve traffic flow and safety in Uptown, and help pedestrians more easily access businesses on both sides of Main Street. Improvements in hardscaping and landscaping will make Sedona's Uptown area more attractive and pedestrian-friendly.
Final designs will rely heavily on input from business and resident stakeholders. Under study are:
- A raised median with landscaping and/or art elements to improve the street's appearance and reduce uncontrolled pedestrian crossings.
- Crossing bridges with art elements improve safety and eliminate conflicts with traffic.
- Remove crosswalk at Arroyo Roble. Direct pedestrians to bridges with art elements at Wayside Chapel and Jordan Road
- Estimated cost is $7 million.
