I have been reading the articles about the need for a protected crosswalk across 24th Street. This is very important for the children living on the north side to get to their schools on the south side. I have a suggestion.

Why not construct an overpass? They are going to be doing a lot of construction for a long period of time so this could be incorporated into the project.

This was done over Highway 178 and should not be nearly as costly to go over 24th Street.
