Making Progress: Ped Light at Blvd & Whiting Lane

Making progress with Vision Zero! Thank you to the Town of West Hartford for installing a pedestrian light to improve safety at the Boulevard and Whiting Lane crosswalk, one block from an elementary school. Eugenia Yurovsky, age 89, was killed by a driver at this intersection in December 2022. Above the push button are white flowers and a pair of “ghost shoes,” placed by activists from Connecticut Urbanists to memorialize her, as described in this Jan 12th 2023 story by Michael Walsh for CT Insider.
