Bell Ave gets crosswalk

The Bell/Hickory intersection between the square and downtown transit center has always needed a crosswalk. I wrote about it last year and this year.

The city installed it on Friday, and although there’s not a button and timer, the paint is a good start. The families who have been playing frogger with car traffic will appreciate it, as will the downtown businesses who will benefit from improved walkability.

Denton’s Transportation Director, Mark Nelson, made a video about it.
