Make streets easier to cross
GR needs more ways to increase pedestrian safety and convenience.
It's this way many places in the city, but I'm thinking specifically of Kalamazoo Ave south of 28th St. Other than at busy intersections, there are no pedestrian crosswalks. A person can walk far out of the way to get to one, or cross wherever. I choose to cross wherever, but sometimes I wait for minutes to find a safe time to cross. More crosswalks would be nice, but people travel pretty fast on that street, so a standard striped crosswalk might not be enough. Kalamazoo is hilly from 28th St to 44th, so visibility can make crossing tricky.
I'd love to see a road diet (down to one lane each way, with center turn lane) on this street, with pedestrian refuges added to make crossing easier. It seems like pedestrian and bicyclists are considered in the more central parts of the city, but it's pretty much ignored along the edges.
