Safety concern exists on other city roads also

Gordy Heminger and Gordy Heminger

After driving down Thurstin Avenue and talking with student leaders and faculty and staff members, I am very concerned about pedestrian safety with the “island” removed.

I attended the City Council meeting on Monday night and this issue was discussed. I would encourage Bowling Green to work with student leaders and talk with faculty and staff members who utilize the crossing to come up with a solution to increase safety for those seeking to cross the street.

While the crossing on Thurstin Avenue has become an issue, the crossing on Mercer Street remains an issue. I would encourage City Council to examine ways to improve pedestrian safety for those crossing Mercer Street to go to the Intramural Fields, Alumni Center, or the parking lot for many on-campus residents.
