Several existing streets and roads in the Bay Area have many vehicles causing traffic deaths and injuries. To address this issue, new design approaches and policies that claim traffic deaths are preventable and traffic design can account for human failure in its approach. This project is a street redesign of 19th Avenue in San Francisco and El Camino Real in Santa Clara. To address past crashes on each intersection and street corridor, several alternative designs were created. In these redesigns, past crash incidents, pedestrian needs, vehicular needs, and biking needs are addressed. Alternative analysis was conducted to recommend new, safer designs for these streets and intersections. For El Camino Real, added bike lanes and various safety features were recommended. For 19th and Winston Drive, added lanes and signal timing changes were recommended. Finally, for 19th and Sloat Boulevard, an added left turning lane was recommended.
