CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Some people say there aren't enough crosswalks in Cape Coral, and someone is going to get hurt.
Only WINK News has learned the city is looking into if the crosswalks are needed along SE 47th Terrace, a busy part of the city.
It didn't take long for our WINK News cameras to catch people rushing across the road. It's a sight Edward Ramos says happens over and over again in front of his office.
"We're seeing more and more traffic coming down to the CRA, it's becoming more of a destination, which is a wonderful thing, as a result, of course, we have more pedestrian traffic," said Ramos.
He wonders if the city can install extra crosswalks to make its entertainment district more pedestrian friendly and less of a public safety hazard.
"In season it does become a problem," he said.
While there are some crosswalks on SE 47th Terrace, at other intersections there are none. WINK News has learned since January 2013, at least three people have been struck by vehicles on SE 47th Terrace.
But some say crosswalks or not, people will still rush across the road.
"People don't want to go out of their way to walk down a street," said resident Adam Willaford. "If it's across the street, you're going to walk straight across. You're not going to go somewhere else to do it."
The city tells WINK News it can't comment right now because its public works department is still working on the study. Because the city is still conducting the study, it also can't release how much money crosswalks would cost.
"I think it all boils down to what money is available to do the different improvements that we need to do in the CRA," said Ramos.
City leaders are expecting to talk about the results of the study, after council gets back from its summer break, which is the end of July.
