What is the purpose of raised medians? 
Raised medians reduce the number of conflicting vehicle maneuvers crossing the stripe lanes. 
The new raised medians will NOT be continuously within the limits. 
There will be turn pocket medians to allow vehicles into driveways.

The railings are placed in the middle of the raised median to divert students and pedestrians from running across the street.
