Farrington High School students are working with city officials to make the streets in our neighborhood safer.
The students helped identify the most dangerous corners in the area and created new painted curb extensions, known as bulb outs, for them. They even helped paint the designs on them.
“We actually were involved with getting them to map out their routes that they typically walk in the neighborhood and they identified this as one of the locations where they had challenges and seemed a little dangerous,” Renee Espiau, the city’s complete streets administrator told KITV news
Officials said that the bulb outs narrow the road and force drivers to slow down and be aware of pedestrian traffic at intersections on North King Street near the school.
