Campus smart streets

It's the lull just before fall semester, but around campus, progress marches on. Though they have been a political hot potato locally, smart streets are a safety innovation the university can and has embraced. Note the new pedestrian islands on Carlton Street in front of Stegeman Coliseum. The university has added painted bike lanes around campus as well, all in the service of safer transit in what is a very densely populated area.

Look for more of these as you watch out for people, bikes, buses and yes, cars on campus and around Athens. They can all co-exist and we can get to where we are going in, on time and in one piece.
