Danville to install Front Street crosswalk

The Town of Danville plans to install a pedestrian crosswalk on Front Street crossing from the Danville Public Library to the Eugene O'Neill Commemorative. The Town Council approved including the project in the town's Capital Improvement Program, at its meeting last week.

The brick paving which crosses Front Street at that location was intended for decoration, not as a place to cross the street. However, people continually use it as a crosswalk so the Town Council decided to go ahead and convert it to a real crosswalk for safety.

The project could include a lighted crosswalk system embedded in the pavement; flashing signs, pedestrian barricades, a red curb and "no parking" signage along the west side of Front Street; and handicap ramps. The town will remove landscaping and five street parking spaces to make way for the crosswalk.
