After years of shaking bushes and rattling sticks, Audubon Park residents will finally have a pedestrian crosswalk on Corrine Drive for people heading to East End Market.

On Friday, July 29, Mayor Dyer and District 3 City Commissioner Robert F. Stuart were touted out to Audubon Park, along with city staff and contractors to help with the installation of a new mid-block hybrid beacon crosswalk that will signal drivers to stop so pedestrians can cross the street between East End Avenue and Northwood Terrace Drive.

The project is expected to be completed in early/mid-August and will have new road safety markings, curb extensions, and the addition of a new pedestrian refuge island at the center of the street.

We first told you about the new crosswalk HERE in April 2021. So you’ll have no excuse to drive fast along this stretch of road anymore.
