The Indiana Department of Transportation is planning to hold a public open house on Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. in regard to the pedestrian crossing at U.S. 41 and Washington Avenue.
The open house will be held at the Benjamin Bosse High School Cafeteria located at 1300 Washington Avenue in Evansville, Indiana.
During the open house, the public will have the chance to view and comment on the recommended pedestrian crossing changes at U.S. 41 and Washington Avenue.
INDOT says the intent of the project is to improve pedestrian safety for pedestrians trying to cross the highway at Washington Avenue.
Doors will be open from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. to provide participants time to view displays and speak with project representatives.
The High-Rail Pedestrian Trail runs along the west side of US 41 within the project limits and connects to the sidewalks on the north and south sides of Washington Avenue. Benjamin Bosse High School is located in the northeast corner of the intersection.
INDOT says that due to safety concerns for foot and bicycle traffic at the intersection, a grade-separated crossing is warranted at the location. A pedestrian bridge is being recommended on the north side of the US 41 and Washington Avenue intersection.
Comments can be submitted in writing via a comment form or verbally at the public open house.
