After several alarming fatal crashes in the University Area, the MPO and partner agencies focused on making improvements to the bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure. A significant improvement was the redesign of Fletcher Avenue to include several new pedestrian crossings.
Now, the University Area District Community Development Corporation is working to get grant money and enlist local businesses to not just add sidewalks, but fix broken roads and cut down trees blocking street lights. Residents said changes are desperately needed. As recently reported by ABC Action News the residents are more than happy to welcome this community investment.
