TxDOT installs crosswalks in Roscoe

December 6, 2012

TxDOT recently installed crosswalks and stop bars at the intersection of Broadway and Cypress Streets in Roscoe. The work was completed at the request of the city to enhance pedestrian safety.
TxDOT reminds pedestrians that it is much safer to use crosswalks rather than crossing the street at mid-block. Drivers approaching crosswalks should stop behind the stop bar when pedestrians are crossing. This will give pedestrians ample space to cross and will allow other drivers approaching the intersection to see that the crosswalk is occupied.
