%X Today, a significant proportion of movements are available for distances below one kilometer is carried out with the feet. The separation of pedestrian traffic with traffic passing through highways and highways is one of the issues that, in addition to ensuring the safety of pedestrians, also covers the flow of traffic. One of the safe passageways of these pedestrian crossings is the construction of passageways of non-level pedestrians (overpasses or underpasses). Therefore, the mathematical model in this research was designed with the goal of the minimum total distance of pedestrians to the passage. Model inputs were prepared using the ArcGIS software, such as applying the population to applications and obtaining distances, then by solving this model, an optimal locating of non-level passes was performed using Genetic Algorithm. In order to optimize and optimize the management of project costs, the passageways were prioritized based on effective parameters. Thus, by identifying the effective parameters such as the size of the pedestrian and the volume and speed of the vehicles, using the ArcGIS software, the information layers of the parameters were created and applied to the layers using the required hierarchical weighting method and this method of prioritizing the non-level crossings of the pedestrian is done. The research method was carried out on a case study and non-level crossings of passageways were locally located in the area. The importance of effective parameters for prioritizing non-level passes, pedestrian accidents, and the volume of passing pedestrians from the street had the most important factor. Finally, 21 points for constructing of pedestrian crossing is determined that prioritized based on Genetic Algorithm.
