Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Safety Benefit of Raised Medians and Pedestrian Refuge Areas, FHWA-SA-10-020, (2010) This document is an excellent summary of the safety benefits of medians for pedestrians, pedestrian access to transit stops, pedestrian crossing maneuvers, as well as benefits of medians in general. It includes several references that will be useful as well. It is of significant value to the AMM2 chapters and sections on impacts of access management techniques and pedestrians. Key findings are reproduced below.
