Safety issue: Kedzie Ave. pedestrian crossing signals at Milwaukee Ave.

25 Oct

At the south end of the Logan Square Blue Line station/bus terminal, the Kedzie Avenue crosswalk at Milwaukee Avenue is angled in a way that makes sense in relation to the station.  It is also at a signalized intersection that includes pedestrian crossing signals.

However, the pedestrian crossing signals are not properly synched, making it impossible for a pedestrian to fully cross Kedzie Avenue with the signalled crossing.  You can cross from one side of Kedzie Avenue to the median with the walk symbol, only to find yourself stranded in the median with a “Don’t Walk” sign for the remainder of the crossing.
