New Traffic Signal in Pasadena Aides Pedestrians Crossing Street

A new traffic signal in the Playhouse District will make it safer for pedestrians to cross the street

I’m always glad to see investments by the city when it comes to pedestrian oriented development. In the Playhouse District, a new traffic signal has gone up at the intersection of Union and Oakland, which can get pretty busy with pedestrians as the area has become more of a destination over the years.

The traffic signal will be a great addition to the neighborhood as it will allow for safer crossings at this T-intersection bordered by the Fuller Seminary, Pasadena Museum of California Art, Le Cordon Bleu culinary school, and 24 Hour Fitness gym. Also, many people who park in a structure on Union and walk to the 24 Hour Fitness gym closer to Colorado Blvd will now be able to walk across the street much more safely than before.

  1. Yeah, that parking structure on Union is the designated structure for 24 Hour Fitness, so there was a lot of foot traffic across Union there. Good to see it getting a bit safer!

  2. Thank goodness! Driving along Union, pedestrians crossing there are always a surprise as it’s so badly marked. I was sure I’d accidentally kill someone one of these days.
