Beechwood Neighborhood intersection gets a makeover to make it safer
Rochester, N.Y. - A section of the Beechwood Neighborhood in Rochester just got a makeover to make it safer.
The intersection at Parsells Avenue and Greeley Street was chosen out of 90 submissions around Monroe County.
With speeding an issue, volunteers spent Saturday putting in speed bumps and curb extensions, so cars won't be able to take fast turns.
"I think this will help the neighborhood a lot of ways," said Joe DiFiore of the Beechwood Neighborhood Coalition. "One, helping us build community. Two, slowing down cars and three, really bringing some positive attention to Beechwood."
The intersection wasn't just made safer, it was also beautified with artistic elements like paintings and yarn art.
