IndyGo to Install Audible Crosswalk Signals

IndyGo has announced two upcoming improvements to the Red Line rapid transit route corridor. The Company will install audible crosswalk signals for riders with vision disabilities at all Red Line stations.

These audible crosswalk signals will assist passengers with vision disabilities in determining when the “walk” sign is displayed. These additions will begin in the coming months.

“The Mobility Advisory Committee is excited to hear that IndyGo is choosing to implement these accessibility improvements,” said Greg Meyer, chair of IndyGo’s Mobility Advisory Committee, “The ability to use an auditory cue to determine when it’s safe to cross the street has a major impact on IndyGo’s visually impaired riders, and all pedestrians along the corridor.”

IndyGo will also begin improvements to the Red Line route along Meridian street. Based on the success along College Avenue of replacing the rubber medians with concrete, IndyGo will also replace the rubber medians along Meridian Street.

All construction will be confined to the dedicated bus-only lane.

These two improvements are within the remainder of the Red Line project budget.
