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.

There’s more pedestrian improvements to come through our Pike District Pedestrian Safety Campaign, so stay tuned!…
