Safety issue: Kedzie Ave. crosswalk at Emmett St.

24 Oct

The Kedzie Avenue crosswalk at Emmett Street does not take anyone where they might want to go in relation to the Logan Square Blue Line station/bus terminal.  If you’re arriving on foot from the east, it does not make sense to take a crosswalk that angles north away from the station.  If you’re leaving the station heading east, it does not make sense to go north to take a crosswalk angled south.

In addition, the crosswalk is not striped and the minimum markings that are present are partially worn away.  As currently marked, it does not send the appropriate message to motorists to be on alert for crossing pedestrians.
