The Oregon Department of Transportation has added a crosswalk near Pilot Butte to help with pedestrian safety. Drivers and pedestrians will see the new light and crosswalk at 12th and Greenwood. Rex Holloway is with OODOT: “It's a crosswalk very similar to what we put on the Bend Parkway. It's pedestrian activated and there's signage there to help motorists to know where to stop and there's flashing lights.” Holloway reminds bicyclists and pedestrians to activate these crosswalks lights when crossing the road. Drivers get used to seeing these lights flashing when someone is crossing and when they don't do it, many drivers assume no one is crossing.
