Celebrating a Win for Pedestrian Safety

To improve pedestrian safety in my neighborhood, I’ve recently started placing work requests with the county’s Department of Transportation and with the State Highway Administration. My requests include creating a new crosswalk, installing ADA accessible pedestrian “islands” in the median, adding time on the walking signal, and installing an ADA audible signal. I am celebrating the completion of my first successful work request — the county recently repainted two crosswalks at intersections a block away from an elementary school. Here are the before and after pictures.  (Source of the “before” pictures is Google maps from a few years ago).
