What exactly are we waiting for?

Here is the entrance to the Atlanta Beltline’s Eastside trail. (Note: it’s not in this video, but there is a phase where one side of the motor vehicles still go while the other side is stopped, and this is confusing and unexpected to those trying to cross who may not be familiar with this intersection — it is not intuitive how it works.)

Here are some of the people who cross there during morning rush hour.

Here is the ghost bike, almost all covered with vegetation now, commemorating a 14-year-old freshman in high school (which is right across the street) named Alexia who was killed by a motor vehicle driver there three and a half years ago.


Safety improvements on this road have been discussed since Alexia died. Will the child pictured be in college (like Alexia’s classmates now are) by the time this road gets safer?
