City construction crews and Indiana University officials are gearing up for the new school year with the introduction of new pedestrian islands on campus. Two of the crosswalks were built on Fee Lane last spring in response to a fatal accident which took the life of an IU student.
Crews just finished work on an additional island on nearby Tenth Street next to the School of Public and Environmental affairs. Several more structures have been proposed along Jordan Avenue and on Seventeenth Street near the stadium… as well as another crosswalk on Tenth Street near Walnut Grove. Approval of the planned additions will be determined by a study of the three existing pedestrian islands on campus.
