In response to the two recent student pedestrian incidents at crosswalks on Elizabeth Avenue, the college has taken the following actions:
- A law enforcement patrol will be parked along Elizabeth Avenue with flashing blue lights on class days from 7-9:30 a.m., noon to 2 p.m., and 5 to 9 p.m. These times will be adjusted to match any changes in pedestrian traffic.
- The college has contacted Charlotte DOT with the request to repaint all Central Campus crosswalks in a color more noticeable and reflective than white.
- The college and CMPD have requested that permanent flashing lights be installed at the crosswalks on Elizabeth Avenue. These would be similar to the crosswalk lights at Harper Campus.
- Campus Security Directors, Student Government Officers, CMPD and Mecklenburg Sheriff Deputies, and Allied Universal Police Officers are kindly reminding students and employees to always use the crosswalks and to always be alert for oncoming vehicles when crossing the street.
