Sycamore/Bell walk signal error

switched crosswalk signals, walk symbol during cross traffic green light

Be careful crossing Bell Ave at Sycamore, because some of the walk signals are switched and displaying the white pedestrian emblem while cross traffic has a green light.  Conversely, some of the walk signals show the red hand during a green phase, even after you’ve pushed the crosswalk button.  This is a new intersection that was put up to accommodate DCTA bus traffic when the new transit station opens in 2011.

As the area redevelops, we can expect to see a thorough transformation of the surrounding blocks, and foot/bicycle traffic will only be increasing for all these intersections that lead to the transit station and beautiful Southeast Denton.

We’ve passed this along to Denton’s engineers, Bernard Vokoun and Frank Payne.
