Downtown Zachary Will Soon See Three New Crosswalks

Painting began today on Lee Street at the entrance of The HugYourPeople Park and the intersections of Main Street and Lee Street on both sides, connecting retailers.

The crosswalks will help make Zachary more walkable and show pedestrians the best place to cross the street safely. Children can now cross Lee Street to visit the park safely. “This project, along with several other crosswalks in the city, were analyzed and studied last year by a professional traffic engineer who recommended implementation and guidance,” says Mayor Amrhein. Pedestrians have the right of way in crosswalks that are marked. This means a driver must yield to any pedestrian within the crosswalk on the road where the vehicle is traveling or turning onto.

The project was a partnership with the City of Zachary, and Sherwin Williams, who donated the paint to complete this community project.

Look for more crosswalks in the future to better accommodate pedestrians in our city.
