Next Tuesday, October 3 from 2-3p, District 1 folks are invited to join the SP Police Department and County officials as we demonstrate how the new HAWK (high-intensity activated crosswalk) system will work to make crossing White Bear Avenue safer for pedestrians and bikers.
The new signal is at Margaret Street and White Bear Avenue and we will be holding a "STOP FOR ME" event, educating drivers about the crosswalk rule and making sure that bikes and pedestrians use the crossing correctly and safely.
Join us as we walk back and forth across the street at this FIRST IN THE COUNTY type of crossing!!
Getting more of us out walking and biking increases our own health, makes our neighborhoods safer, and gives us a chance to say "Hi!"
District 1 is happy to have worked with County Commissioner McDonough and the City of Saint Paul, to make this transportation FIRST happen in our neighborhood!
