Accessible Pedestrian Signals Coming to Campus
Provide Feedback to UDOT!
Over the next several years, UDOT will install Accessible Pedestrian Signals (APS) at all UDOT intersections, including ones that reside on and around the University of Utah's campus. As it will take quite a bit of resources and time to deploy these audible pedestrian signals, they are soliciting input from the public as to where they should prioritize installations. If you would like to help UDOT intersections around campus have an opportunity to move up the priority installation list, please feel free to provide UDOT feedback by clicking on this LINK.

- Devices that provide auditory, visual, and vibrotactile information to pedestrians so they can know when they should begin to cross at the signalized intersection.
- Translates visual pedestrian information to other sensory formats, enabling all people to navigate cities safely and comfortably.
- Integrated into the push button station and installed adjacent to the crosswalk they signal.
