It seems trivial, but the work being done just up the street from our house is big for those of us who push strollers or use wheel chairs to get around. The curbs on each side of a very large street as well as the median in the middle were at points a full foot high. When trying to navigate that with a loaded stroller and a child in hand, it became an exercise in strengthening one’s wrists and frazzling one’s nerves.
No more! Work finally resumed on improving the crosswalks in our neck of the woods, and ours finally got some attention. Out when the high granite curbs replaced by handicapped and stroller accessible ramps. The median was removed for that section, too.
This will make life so much better when I have to schlep both kids to the T.
