Crossing Montauk Highway in Bridgehampton on foot is about to get safer. An illuminated crosswalk is being installed in front of the Hampton Library. We've found that the illuminated crosswalks in East Hampton have definitely made it safer for us to cross as pedestrians; as drivers, it's much easier to see that there are people in the crosswalk when it's lit up. The new Bridgehampton crosswalk will light up automatically once a person steps onto the street, unlike in East Hampton where you have to press a button. It's just too bad it took the tragic death of Anna Pump to get Southampton to listen to residents' safety concerns.
