'Brittany's Crosswalk' plan to be voted on Tuesday



CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Charlotte Mecklenburg school leaders will vote on a plan in honor of a teenager hit and killed outside her school more than two years ago.

The city wants to make a busy intersection safer for students at Garinger High School and they need the school district's help.

Every day hundreds of students cross Eastway Drive but there is still no crosswalk after Brittany Palmer was hit and killed by a car more than two years ago.

Brittany’s family has been fighting to get the city to add a crosswalk since her death. Tuesday night, the school district will vote to add a crosswalk as well as improve the sidewalks and roads to make it safer for everyone walking there.

Channel 9 is working to find out when construction could start.

The crosswalk will be called "Brittany's Crosswalk" in honor of Palmer.
