It’s the county’s call

| Tuesday, November 13, 2012


Pedestrian safety has always been a top priority for the University of Notre Dame. In recent months University planners have worked with St. Joseph County officials to assess the cross-walk at Twyckenham Road and Vaness Street (“Students Petition for Light,” Nov. 12.)

The University will continue to discuss possible solutions with the county, but while we are committed to improving pedestrian safety at that intersection, the county has the ultimate authority in deciding how best to proceed.
