The town is making it easier for pedestrians to get where they want to go more quickly, safely and easily with the installation of 15 new pedestrian crossovers this year. The first four crossovers will be installed this month, weather permitting.
Unlike crosswalks, crossovers require motorists and cyclists to wait for pedestrians to cross the full width of the road before proceeding.
Pedestrian crossovers can be found at any stretch of roadway, usually mid-block. They are marked by ladder-style stripes on the road and signage that says "Stop for Pedestrians." They sometimes have overhead signage and lights.
