OGDEN — After the death of two men on Wall Avenue near St. Anne’s Center in Ogden, the area’s homeless population hopes something will be done to make crossing the street there safer.
“The cars don’t want to stop,” Anthony Gallegos said, noting many vehicles move too fast to slow down. “They need to put a crosswalk there.”
Gallegos and a number of homeless patrons of the shelter, at 137 W. Binford St., recently discussed their difficulties trying to cross Wall Avenue.
Ideas to improve the area include a proper crosswalk, better lighting and a pedestrian bridge.
