Intersection a hazard

Having lived in the Norwood area of Marietta for many years, I have been witness to near pedestrian accidents on the corner of Pike and Acme streets on numerous occasions. I have walked that intersection myself and know that there is no crosswalk or flashing walk sign to aid pedestrians.

I am mostly concerned about visitors to Marietta who don’t know that this intersection does not have a crosswalk. I have personally seen older people trying to make it across Acme Street while dodging cars. It’s frightening to watch. I ask that the city administrators do something about this hazard immediately.
