Survey crews reached Mass. Ave. east of Capitol Square this week, where they are drawing the future on the ground.

Today’s photos, taken on July 15, show surveyors working at the pedestrian crossing by Marathon St.

Though there have been no fatalities at this location, this is another troublesome crossing that will be made safer with bump outs and a pedestrian island

Also, of course, by the elimination of an unneeded westbound vehicle lane and its multi-lane threat.
