Five years after her husband was killed while crossing Evergreen Parkway, there is still no crosswalk or caution signal at that location, says resident Peggy Steele.
And she wonders why not.
A vehicle struck Jim Steele, who had been traveling home by bus on a dark night in December 2007. The bus stop he used was across the highway from Brookline Road and the entrance to the Hiwan subdivision where he lived.
“After that happened, it came to light how many near-misses there have been in that area,” Steele said.
