2016 Award Winner: Charlotte Leading Pedestrian Interval Plus (LPI+)
City of Charlotte Department of Transportation
Congratulations to our finalists in the NCSITE Outstanding Project Award and our first place winner, Welcome to the New Age LPI+. Charlotte DOT aimed to enhance the comfort and safety of pedestrians using signalized crosswalks at intersections with right turn lanes without significantly affecting the capacity of the intersection. The solution takes the idea of the leading pedestrian interval and puts it on steroids, or as they call it: “LPI Plus.”
