Monroe Co. Gets State Funding for Proposed Pedestrian Safety Action Plan

posted by Newsradio WHAM 1180 - 

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo says the county is receiving more than a million dollars' worth of state funding for its proposed Pedestrian Safety Action Plan.

The plan would upgrade safety measures at 400 crosswalks countywide -- with the goal of increasing walkability and improving visibility and safety of people crossing the street. 

Dinolfo says that will make families safer as people go about their business. A press release says more than 400 marked crosswalks will be changed to high-visibility crosswalks, and many crosswalks that have walk lights will be modified so pedestrians get to walk first before the lights change.

Design is scheduled to begin over the winter and construction work starts next year.
