Pedestrian Crossovers (PXO’s)

Pedestrian Crossovers are a type of traffic control used in Markham to assist pedestrians crossing the street. Pedestrian Crossovers are located at lower speed (60 km/h and under speed limit), low-medium volume roads, intersections and at roundabouts.

On January 1st, 2016, the Highway Traffic Act was revised to include a regulation which identifies a new type of Pedestrian Crossover. As a result of the legislative framework, including the Act, new regulation (402/15), and modifications to Ontario Traffic Manual Book 15 – Pedestrian Crossing Facilities, municipalities can install pedestrian crossovers on low speed, low to medium volume roads.
