Everyday individuals, i.e,, players, staff, employees, students, etc. walk directly out of the Lowell Stevens building from breakfast or lunch, etc. and cross the street in the middle of traffic adjacent to the Cherry Street garage. There is a stop sign facing west for traffic to stop and turn right onto Cherry and there is where the chaos begins. I have watched car after car dodging individuals who are crossing where no crosswalk lies. This is dangerous but could also be solved by either providing a crossing area or educating individuals where they should be crossing the street.

Thanks to Chris Kopach, Assistant Vice President, Facilities Management, for providing the following response:
After consultation with Risk Management Services, UAFM has decided to construct two cross-walks from the NE corner of Enke and Cherry, one going north-south across Enke and the other going east-west across Cherry (see annotated photograph. There is already an ADA-compliant curb ramp at that corner, and UAFM Paint Shop will paint the crosswalk markings at the earliest opportunity. The existing stop-line pavement markings will also be repainted.
We are also looking at the feasibility of increasing stop-sign visibility from both directions.
Thanks to David Heineking, Executive Director of Parking & Transportation Services, for the following response:
This is currently under review. There may be an opportunity to make a crosswalk from east to west from the N.E. corner of Cherry and Enke to the sidewalk on the north side of Lowell-Stevens.
