(( )) demetria obilor: chris asks, "what's the latest on the crosswalk at dorrell and brighton village street? h intersection. kids cross all the time and traffic never stops for them." several months ago, i reached out to the city of las vegas and asked if the dorrell and brighton village street intersection could be made safer. nothing has happened so far, so i reached out again. all of it comes down to funding from my understanding...the city says that the funds for the pedestrian flasher were grouped into a citywide pedestrian flasher project funed by federal transportation

october 1. thing is, federal funds come with numerous restrictions related to bidding and construction, which would delay construction of this flasher for another six months. because question 5 passed on this last ballot, the city says it can now use that additional gas tax revenue for pedestrian safety projects like this one. the city will use those local funds and its own staff to build the flasher over the next 60 days. if you feel unsafe crossing at dorrell and brighton village, the city recommends you walking down to the shaumber/dorrell or egan crest/dorrell intersections. hey! what's driving you crazy? send your traffic question to traffic eight at las vegas now dot com./// paul joncich> a rise in policeoo on edge. has many officers across the nation on edge.
