Crossing Time at Intersection of Delancey and Clinton Extended
The Clinton crosswalk where twelve year-old Dashane Santana lost her life earlier this year, a tragedy that sparked meaningful change along the thoroughfare, now boasts a longer passage time. Pedestrians now have an ample thirty seconds to cross the recently-narrowed street, up seven ticks from the old timers. While the bloated sidewalks, flexible bollards, and re-tooled traffic patterns have already been in play, the extended clock was the most visible holdout. No more dashing across the street willy-nilly.
The bid to co-name the northern part of the intersection for Dashane Santana is presently making its way through the city bureaucracy. Community Board 3 approved the measure back in June, but it still needs the green light from City Council.
