Fayettevillle Street Mall Construction Causes Dangers For Pedestrians

Posted August 5, 2005 1:22 a.m. EDT

— Crews are turning Fayetteville Street Mall back into a street, but the construction is causing some issues for pedestrians.

Construction barriers jut out into Martin Street, taking away a popular sidewalk near the Wake County Courthouse.

People are walking right out into the street, and into traffic.

The city wants pedestrians to use a new crosswalk down the street. Construction should be finished in May.
