New Crosswalk and Sidewalks Connect Neighborhood to Washington Hospital Center

November 3, 2017

Workers adjusting timing on crosswalk signals at new crosswalk.

I had the opportunity to check out the new crosswalk and sidewalk that now connects Park View with the Washington Hospital Center yesterday. I was happy to see a crew adjusting the timing on the crosswalk signals that allow pedestrians to cross Irving Street to get to the hospitals. It was also good to see a new sidewalk has been installed that will allow pedestrians to walk  south from the intersection to Michigan Avenue, and thus to Children’s Hospital.

All of this work is part of the improvements identified during the Crosstown Multimodal Study, which also resulted in the Barnes Dance at 14th and Irving.

Below are photos of the new sidewalk skirting the hospital center.
