Looking at some of the major cities in Spain such as Madrid and Barcelona, I have noticed that a lot of attention and consideration has been given to the pedestrian. My design proposal involves removing most of the traffic noise on McKinley to make this area of Ball State’s campus more pedestrian friendly. The only traffic allowed between Neely and Riverside would be bus transit. This would not only reduce the noise pollution in this area of campus, it would make the north quad a more centralized area for student gatherings and functions. Right now there really is no where on campus to get away from traffic noise and by implementing this design I believe more student would utilize this space.
