A fence has been installed to stop individuals from crossing at the "former cross walk." It seems a problem. The direct route from a large apartment complex to the Virginia Tech campus, across a major four-lane road had a cross walk. It was removed; pedestrians directed to the intersection with a traffic signal. But maybe it is difficult to change route?
This crosswalk is between major university facilities and a large apartment complex. It crosses four-lanes of traffic. It will be closed March 7. My question: will pedestrians continue to take the direct route? The plan is that the pedestrians will make a loop of about a block to a crosswalk at a traffic signal that has a walk/don't walk control.
