Yes! Volunteers Make a Difference – Crosswalks at GTM NERR
From the Friends of A1A Volunteer News Update
After successful meetings with District 2 FDOT officials, Friends of A1A volunteers lead by Tony Bosco, committee chair, succeeded in pursuading roadway engineers that crosswalks at the Guana Reserve in northern St. Johns County needed to return. Several years back, when A1A was resurfaced, three crosswalks were “erased” with the new pavement. The result was that pedestrians crossing from the Guana parking areas hazarded the traffic of passing motorists with little to no warning. Although studies may state crosswalks present a false sense of security to pedestrians, our volunteers and residents of the area know prevention and warning systems are best tried to prevent tragedies. We did it! Thank you Chris LeDew and all the FDOT traffic engine ers!
