[s45] Sen. Smith Joins Madison Officials For Crosswalk Groundbreaking

Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (July 1, 2013) — State Sen. Jim Smith (R-Charlestown) joined local officials in Madison today for the groundbreaking of a new crosswalk in front of Madison Consolidated High School on Clifty Drive.

Smith said the crosswalk is a strong example of community partnership to improve safety for Madison students.

“Today is an important day for the Madison community,” Smith said. “This crosswalk has been a long time coming, and I want to thank all of the individuals and organizations that helped ensure our students have a safe and reliable way to cross this busy road after school.”

Smith worked with Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) officials to create a plan for funding the crosswalk and needed sidewalk development after Madison Consolidated Schools Superintendent Dr. Ginger Studebaker-Bolinger came to him with the request.

“I am grateful to Dr. Studebaker-Bolinger for bringing this vital public safety issue to my attention, and I’m so pleased with the public-private partnership that resulted,” Smith said. “This is great news for our students, Madison High staff and local families.”

INDOT, the City of Madison, Madison Consolidated Schools and the local McDonald’s restaurant are working together to fund the construction project, which is expected to be completed before school starts this fall.
