Another malfunctioning metaphor for downtown quasi-walkability.
In terms of walkability, the intersection of Spring and 15th is decidedly below standard.
Some of the crossing lights work, and others don't. Several of the crossing request buttons are rotten to the touch, and obviously unworkable.
What's more, it's been this way for a long time.
Ironically, the stop light at this same intersection marks the beginning of the only periodically (coin flip?) enforced drag strip on Spring Street, from 15th to 7th.
Maybe some day the Board of Works will take note. We neighborhood residents can dream.
