From Decatur City Commissioner Brian Smith and Mayor Patti Garrett….
Show Your Support for the New Crosswalk on South Candler Street!
DATES: Wednesday, May 25th & Thursday, May 26th
TIME: Approximately 7-8:30am
We need your help. Come out for a morning walk or bike ride at the new crosswalk located at South Candler Street near East Davis Street this week to show your support for safe pedestrian crossings.
The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) will be conducting pedestrian counts this Wednesday and Thursday morning at their new crosswalk located on South Candler Street near East Davis Street. Based on their observations, they will determine what type of pedestrian signal to install. GDOT hopes to collect this data before school lets out so that they can make the improvement before the fall.
Folks of all ages are encouraged to get active on your way to school, work, or even just a morning stroll. Walkers, cyclists, skaters, and even dogs can join in the fun.
Where Should I Walk?
Participants are asked to cross South Candler Street at East Davis Street, using the new crosswalk installed by GDOT this week. GDOT officials will be on hand to conduct pedestrian counts.
