See the lights

After being contacted by officials at Renown Health, the City of Reno has placed pedestrian-activated flashing lights at a crosswalk near the hospital. Located on Kirman Avenue, just south of Aitken Street, the crosswalk is used by patients and employees of the hospital. It connects people to services at Renown hospital, Reno Hospice and Palliative Care and the Stacie Mathewson Behavioral Health & Addiction Institute. More than a dozen pedestrians have been struck and killed in Washoe County this year.
