Pedestrian Safety Improvements for Desert Hot Springs

Pedestrian Safety Improvements for Desert Hot Springs

Desert Hot Springs city officials have committed to improving pedestrian safety at key intersections in the city. They plan to install crosswalks and traffic signals to help keep pedestrians safe along busy portions of Palm Drive.

Street Lights will Improve Pedestrian Visibility

The improvements will be at the intersections of Hacienda, Flora, Buena Vista and Desert View avenues, and Pierson Boulevard. Additionally, the city will install 24 street lights between Two Bunch Palms Trail and Buena Vista. The street lights will help improve pedestrian visibility at night.

The project will likely not be completed until next year. The cost of the project is $2.79 million, 75% of which is covered by the Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG).

“Pedestrian safety should certainly be a high priority for Coachella Valley cities, given the high number of pedestrian accidents we have experienced in recent years,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
