SAFETY: Pecos Pit ‘adopts’ nearby crosswalk, adding flags, while awaiting SDOT paint and other improvements

New at the crosswalk on the south side of 35th and Fauntleroy: Orange safety flags, courtesy of Pecos Pit BBQ (WSB sponsor), which has “adopted” the crosswalk.

Pecos Pit executive Jeannie Hammock says they paid for the flag basket and flags because it’s the best they could do for now – they asked SDOT to restripe the faded crosswalk but it has to wait until the Fauntleroy Boulevard project (and even then, improvements there were late additions to the plan) next year.

She notes that the unofficial “adoption” of the nearby area also includes “the installation/maintenance of landscaping in the ‘triangle’ at the entrance of the WS Bridge in order to beautify the entrance.” (That’s the area just north of the restaurant, which opened a little over a year ago.)

    Thanks Jeannie and Pecos team!  The location always looks sharp and really helps our community shine.  Adopting the crosswalk certainly speaks to your caring for our neighborhood.

    It’s super awesome that we don’t have money to throw paint on the ground to keep people from getting creamed by an SUV.
