The details

Construction is almost complete on crosswalks on Main near Central Christian College.

Newly installed at the crosswalk on Main is a pair of flashing crossing lights, warning drivers of crossing pedestrians.

Currently being installed are new ramps leading down into the crosswalks. The ramps will go across Main Street and across East Avenue F.

Construction has finished on the ramp crossing Main, and workers are finishing the crossing on East Avenue F.

Doug Whitacre, McPherson public works director, said the crosswalks are being installed in order to meet guidelines established by the Americans With Disabilities Act. Construction, he said, should finish soon.
