New Crosswalk Installed in Midtown Reno

Posted: Updated:

If you're driving through the Midtown District anytime soon, you might notice something new -  a crosswalk in front of Junkee Clothing Exchange.

Midtown businesses and the Regional Transportation Commission teamed up to design and install the new crosswalk, and Thursday, they celebrated it with a party and some music.

RTC officials say the new crosswalk will not only make the area safer, but also make some businesses in midtown more accessible.

"We build neighborhoods. I know a lot of people think we're for the roads and whatnot, but we're really in the neighborhood building business and that's what this really helps us do," says Executive Director Lee Gibson.

Again, you'll find that new crosswalk on Virginia Street - between Junkees and Sippees, so if you're driving through that area, watch out for pedestrians.
