Keith Cruz, the VP of Community Affairs for the Mapleton-Fall Creek Association, has lived in the area for 12 years and wants to remind people that College Avenue is a residential street.
"There are very few businesses on College," he said. "This is where people live. Kids are out on the sidewalks. People use the sidewalks for walking. ... I would just like people to be careful when they drive."
Hogsett's team responded on Twitter, saying IMPD will increase patrols in the area. On Monday, a truck flipped in a crash near the intersection of 30th Street and College Avenue.
Thank you for reaching out - @IMPDnews is planning to increase patrols and beat officers on the streets/intersections that are impacted by construction/detours to help slow down speeds in area neighborhoods and intersections.
