Description

The cross walk painted on 9th St N near 17th Ave N is used frequently by people going to/from Crescent Lake. However, the street marking and signage are so hard to see that many drivers speed past while people are waiting to cross. It is very dangerous for pedestrians, especially the many children in the surrounding neighborhoods. In this location - where drivers don't stop at the area designated as the safest place to cross - the cross walk only provides a false sense of security. Is it possible to repaint the cross walk, making it more obvious to drivers, and to place better signage on the side of the road? Ideally, the best option would be to install a median (similar to that on 4th St N near 20th Ave N) that made the pedestrian crossing more obvious. Thank you for your attention to this matter!
