We’re happy to see that new signage has been added to a popular crosswalk on busy Quincy Street north of Fairfax Drive, near Central Library.
The crosswalk serves pedestrians crossing at the ART 52/53 bus stop on the west side of Quincy Street, and those making the short walk between Central Library and the Ballston Metro Station.
In the coming weeks we’ll be opening Central Library’s nearby 10th street entrance for public use, so we’re particularly glad to see this extra safety measure in place.
The new signs remind drivers that state law requires a vehicle to yield to pedestrians within a crosswalk. From what we observed today the reminder is helping, but those looking for a more secure crossing may still want to use the crosswalks with pedestrian crossing lights at the end of the block.
