Garfield Street Crosswalk

crosswalk
We petitioned the city to support a pedestrian crossing on A1A at Garfield street.  This is a busy area and we need to offer a safe crossing since the median is gone and there is no refuge for those walking across the road.  The FDOT (Florida Department of Transportation) and the Community Redevelopment Agency created plans and approved a crossing with markings and a signal to make this possible.  We are seeing an uptick in bicycles and foot traffic now that the road improvements are mostly complete and safe crossing zones will improve the circulation in the neighborhood.
