    We need a safe walkway around the entire lab. Currently it is necessary to walk some sections in the road.

    The busy intersection near the firehouse (Segre/Lawrence) has no walkways, and all traffic has some kind of visual impairment.

    If people start looking around when they walk/run, as well as listen to the sounds around, rather than listen to music through their devices while writing their e-mails, they will more likely not get into dangerous situations on the road.

    On the other hand, it seems like driving through the tight curves and hills around the lab is beyond capabilities of at least some drivers. Some kind of a driving safety course (hands-on) might help…

    Start over with walkway planning. Discover the ideal walkway location: what is the most efficient and enjoyable route in order to encourage a walking campus. We have views, and landscapers, and great destinations!

    Small but significant specific walkway issue: The walkway on Lawrence Road below the ALS (bldg 6)from the cooling towers (bldg 37) up to the firehouse – the walkway completely disappears (and there is no shoulder) near the crest of the hill forcing pedestrians into the road , which is narrow and with very limited sight distance. Car come over the hill quickly.
