The Big Walk on South Candler Street

January 13th, 7-9 am

Come out and walk or bike on January 13th to show support for proposed pedestrian crosswalks on South Candler Street.  The neighborhood is teaming up with the City of Decatur, City Schools of Decatur, and the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) to organize a Big Walk from 7-9 am on Wednesday January 13th.

Who’s Invited?

We need your help to show that there is demand for more safe crossing options in this area.  Folks of all ages are encouraged to get active on your way to school, work, or even just a morning stroll.  Walkers, cyclists, skaters, and even dogs can join in the fun.

Where Should I Walk?

Participants are asked to cross South Candler Street at East Dougherty Street, Kirk Road, or East Pharr Road.  Feel unsafe?  No worries, Decatur Police and City staff will be on hand to keep things running smoothly.  GDOT officials will be on hand to conduct pedestrian counts.

Questions?
