Thank you, MCDOT, for our beautiful brand new mid-block crosswalk on Marinelli between the Conference Center and the Grand/Wisconsin buildings!  We’ve been working with MCDOT for a year to create this crosswalk, and we couldn’t be happier to see it installed. It’s a boon for walking convenience and safety.  (Of course — be careful and be sure no cars are zooming through as you cross.)
