What is a median?

Medians are raised barriers in the center portion of the street or roadway that can serve as a landing place for pedestrians who cross a street midblock or at an intersection location. They may provide space for trees and other landscaping. They also have benefits for motorist safety when they replace continuous center turn lanes.
