Another Crosswalk upgrade

You may have noticed the construction going on at the intersection of McAbee Road and Golden Oak Way at  Jeffrey Fontana Park.  Another crosswalk with flashing beacons and bulb-out curb extensions, just like the one at the intersection of Meridian Avenue and Oak Glen Way, is being installed.  Per a news article in the San Jose Mercury News, the logic for bulb-outs is pedestrian safety. Pedestrians can walk across a narrower street and be less exposed to traffic for a shorter distance and amount of time.
