Make Asheville safer: add a crosswalk to one of our most dangerous intersections.
Sign our petition to put in a crosswalk at Leicester Hwy and Patton Ave to help promote a safe environment for pedestrians and cyclists in Asheville.
The intersection of Leicester Hwy and Patton Ave is one of Asheville busiest intersections, with 5 plus lanes of traffic and constant roadway congestion. At this time, there is no crosswalk within a quarter mile of this intersection, forcing pedestrians to either run across the street illegally, or walk a long distance on an unsafe road without clear sidewalks in order to cross in a crosswalk. With bus stops on both sides of Patton Ave, a grocery store, pharmacy and other businesses in close proximity to this intersection, it is vitally important that something is done to promote a safe environment for Asheville's pedestrians.
We are asking the city of Asheville to add a crosswalk to this intersection so that our residents can go to work and run errands without feeling as though they're taking their lives into their hands every time they need to cross the street.

It is my goal to keep Asheville a safe, walkable, vibrant city for pedestrians, children, pets and cyclicts. As our city rapidly grows, so does the need to make sure that our roadways stay safe, and usable for our citizens.
At the present time, there is no crosswalk within the vicinity of the intersection of Patton Ave. and Leicester Hwy. With bus stops on both sides of the street, a grocery store, pharmacy and other necessary businesses, residents are forced to run across busy roadways and risk being hit, because there is no safe crossing within a reasonable distance.
I'm asking that the City of Asheville and NC DOT install a crosswalk at this intersection, as one way to ensure that Asheville stays safe and usable for all of our citizens. Thank you.
