John contacted 17 News. He asks who did the work at Q Street and Truxtun?
John says the red sidewalk is already broken and the crosswalk lights don't give pedestrians enough time to get halfway across the intersection before the flashing lights start.
Public Works Director Raul Rojas says there are some cracked concrete areas on Q Street that are to be removed and replaced by the contractor before they give final acceptance to the project.
This project also has a one-year warranty and any further cracking of the concrete will be repaired as part of that warranty.
Rojas adds, it is normal for a pedestrian signal to begin flashing red when a pedestrian is only halfway across the street. The flashing red hand is a signal for a pedestrian not to begin crossing the intersection.
However, traffic engineering has been notified and will check all of the timing for the signals on Q Street to make sure they allow enough time for pedestrians to cross.
