Greenville engineers looking to improve pedestrian crosswalks

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT)- Greenville’s traffic engineers are still working to improve pedestrian crosswalks.

They have collected data from a number of areas around the city and are now in the analyzing phase.

Engineers will record where people are crossing and how many times they cross that street.

The data will help them decide where changes are needed.

“We’ll look at that and we’ll compare the volumes to the warrants that we talked about before, and see if any of these locations are candidates for something more than the high vis crossing,” Rik Dicesare, traffic engineer, said.

Once all the data is recorded, engineers will decide what type changes the intersections qualify for.

Based on previous data, a pedestrian light signal will be installed at a cross walk off Cotanche near the Boundary at East Carolina University.
