Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke says an announcement about the intersection of Highway 41 and Washington Avenue is coming “in the near future.”
Parents and school officials have long sought a pedestrian overpass at the busy intersection near Bosse High School.
Now, Mayor Winnekce says his office and the Indiana Department of Transportation are “negotiating a solution” to make the intersection safer.
In a tweet, the mayor said improving traffic safety and pedestrian access is of “utmost importance.”
Earlier this year, more than 900 people signed a petition asking INDOT to erect an overpass for students.
Hundreds of kids from Bosse and Washington Middle School cross the highway twice each school day.
