Backhoe operator Jon Foster of Kee Construction Services clears away rocks and dirt from a raised crosswalk that is being installed by the City of Winchester in the 300 block of Jefferson Street next to Handley High School. The roadway was raised four inches for the crosswalk, according to Perry Eisenach, the city’s public services director. “It slows down traffic and gives people a safe place to cross Jefferson Street to get to the new sidewalks built on the Handley campus,” Eisenach said Thursday. Thermoplastic markings still need to be installed on top of the crosswalk, he said. The project’s cost was $10,000. (Photo by Ginger Perry/The Winchester Star)
