(From the February 2013 issue of Inside Nationwide Children's)
Trying to cross Parsons Avenue can be a challenge. But there is good news! The City of Columbus has approved a traffic light for the crosswalk and intersection at Parsons and Children’s Crossroad (in front of Research Building III), which will provide a safe alternative for foot traffic between east and west campus. Design and installation are expected to take six months, mostly due to long lead times for the equipment. The City expects installation to be complete by the summer of 2013. A second light has been approved on Livingston Avenue in front of the L-Garage. Timing for this installation is also expected to be complete by late summer of 2013.
