Work to ensure pedestrian safety
Over the past few weeks, the pedestrian crosswalks have been a source of concern on Louisiana Tech University’s campus. During Homecoming week, a student was hit on Tech Drive by a driver in a hit and run incident, and then this past Friday another student was hit — with reportedly minor injuries — on another crosswalk by the F. Jay Taylor Visual Arts Center and A.E. Phillips Laboratory School. Knowing that these were not fatalities brings a sigh of relief to the Ruston community, but nonetheless, it raises an issue of safety.
