Yielding hand-made signs, concerned citizens, cyclists and politicians gathered on Friday, June 10, where the Lafitte Greenway meets North Broad Street to warn drivers of the crosswalk.
This was part of a Safe-Tea event, put on by the Claiborne Corridor Ambassadors, which aims to promote safety on the Lafitte Greenway for cyclists, pedestrians and cars. The greenway stretches from Mid-City through Treme and finishes on Claiborne Avenue. It crosses N. Jefferson Davis Parkway, N. Broad Street and Claiborne Avenue, streets with heavy flows of traffic.
