MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A long-awaited intersection in Cooper-Young is finally finished.
The new crossing at Cooper and Central features talking pedestrian signals to help people with visual impairments know when it’s safe to cross.
Crews installed new crosswalk markings, improved sidewalk ramps and upgraded traffic signals for the busy intersection.
City council approved funding to modernize this intersection for pedestrians in 2018 and construction was underway for several months.
At one point, construction was delayed because a city contractor was waiting for metal utility poles.
