Transportation Alternatives: Public Viewing for Traffic Safety Mural

This
summer, Transportation Alternatives is collaborating with Groundswell to create a mural as the centerpiece of a community
traffic calming project along 3rd Avenue in Boerum Hill, Park Slope and
Gowanus. This project was inspired by the tragic death of James Rice and many
other children that have been injured and killed by cars. As many of you know,
James was hit and killed by a Hummer on 3rd Avenue and Baltic Street on his way
home from pre-school this past February. He had just turned four years old.

Transportation
Alternatives invites you to preview the mural design. We have a
dozen young people that have been learning about the issues and creating design
concepts for the mural that will be painted next month along 3rd Avenue. This
Thursday evening they will be sharing the design to the community for feedback.
We would be honored to have you join us! Kids and neighbors are of course
welcome.
