A group of about 20 concerned citizens gathered at the steps of the Capitol on Monday night to discuss how to make Capital Avenue and the surrounding neighborhood safer for pedestrians and motorists.

During a 30-minute presentation from WalkBike Frankfort board member and Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Engineer Brent Sweger, the group walked down Capital Avenue, stopping at each intersection to discuss what could be done to help achieve the groups safety oriented goals.
