Description

Turning right onto Columbus Blvd from Washington Ave, there's a right-hand cutout just before the intersection.

Something about the timing of the lights, the shallow angle of the cutout compared to the road, or just the width of Washington Ave, seems to encourage cars to speed through this cutout at dangerous speeds.

There's a pedestrian crosswalk across this intersection, but I have personally been nearly run over several times while walking or jogging.

This is a vital access point for the Delaware River Trail and Washington Avenue Green. If the city is serious about walkability and greening up its waterfronts, then they need to rethink this whole intersection.

Until that happens, I'd be happy with one of those yellow pedestrian/crosswalk warning signs, or better a yield to pedestrian sign at this crosswalk.
