Our Task

To explore the feasibility of converting Hilton road from a 3 lane road to a 2 lane road. Proposed improvements included  bike lanes, curb extensions, high visability crosswalks, replacement of unwarranted signals with rectangular rapid flash beacons, crossing islands, landscape buffers with trees, completing sidewalk gaps, providing on-street parking where needed, bike parking and railroad safety improvement.

The Greenway Collaborative also developed Ferndale Moves! and recommendations for Withington Road Traffic Calming.
