Jefferson & Russell Intersection Improved, Far From Perfect

A year ago I posted about a need to improve the pedestrian experience at Jefferson & Russell (map), see Jefferson Avenue Needs A Road Diet, Corridor Study Part 1.

It’s a small start, a few low-cost improvements until a new streetscape can be planned and funded. For those who cross Jefferson at Russell these are welcomed changes.

    This timed crosswalk has made a big difference in pedestrian confidence crossing Jefferson. This was indeed a big improvement.

      Agree, jefferson and Lafayette is a travesty, that should be next on the list. Or how about a jefferson road diet, supplied by a streetcar?

    Much needed. And the newly opened Southside Early Childhood Center at the SW corner is very impressive inside and not bad on the outside…. nicely built up to corner.
