Letter: Pedestrian Buttons

In response to the spread of COVID-19, the City of Providence’s Department of Public Works has recently converted a great many pedestrian signal buttons from manual to automatic, rendering the buttons themselves meaningless, and making the walk signal come with the green light.

In support of this, and in an effort to convert more of our signals across the city to be automatic, WalkPVD sent a letter to DPW voicing our appreciation of this move and our belief that it should be made permanent. To read that letter, click here.

Our members on Facebook also took the opportunity to respond to a post on this topic from the Department of Planning.
