The City of Brighton in partnership with Brighton High School will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony for crosswalk improvements at the high school on Friday, April 15 at 11 a.m. The crosswalk improvement project at 8th Avenue and Skeel Street was initiated by Brighton High School’s A.P. Government Class when students brought forth safety concerns about the crosswalk to Brighton City Council. The City of Brighton’s Public Works Division took those concerns and collaborated with the students and proceeded to plan and design the safety improvements, which include new flashing beacons and curb ramps at the crossing.
“We are so glad that Brighton High School’s A.P. Government Class brought this concern to the City’s attention,” said Michael Woodruff, Director of Infrastructure. “This enabled us to investigate and help create a solution to keep our community safe. This is a perfect example of community engagement coming from our city’s youth.”
At the ribbon cutting, Brighton High School’s A.P. Government Class will unveil the new signals.
The public and media are invited to attend. The ribbon cutting will take place at the intersection of 8th Ave. and Skeel St. Attendees are asked to please follow any safety guidelines and instructions as provided at the event. No reservations are required.
