      Marquette City Police discuss crosswalk safety

      The Marquette City Police want to remind commutters traveling along Front Street to be mindful of all pedestrians at crosswalks.

      The Downtown Development Authority have already placed pedestrian crossing signs at the crosswalk at Front and Main.

      The signs are part of a pilot project to slow down traffic.

      Officials say whether you're a driver, bicyclist, or pedestrian you should keep a look out for each other. A person already standing in a crosswalk has the right of way.

      "They can't just jump into the crosswalk and expect to have the right of way. They need to make sure that there's not cars within a distance that's unsafe while they enter that. If there is they need to let those vehicles pass before entering the crosswalk." said Marquette City Police Captain Blake Rieboldt.

      Signs will also be placed at the intersections of Third and Michigan and Third and Cresecent next week.
