GREENSBORO, N.C. — A popular road in Greensboro is getting major safety improvements after a runner was struck and killed by a car while crossing the street.
City workers started construction on Monday along N. Church St. The road is surrounded by trails and the city wants to make the area safer for pedestrians.
The long list of projects includes adding a crosswalk, removing a parking lot officials say is unsafe, moving trail heads, and installing signs to create a “trail crossing zone.”
This is all in an effort to make the road safer after a runner, Pat Crockett, was killed trying to get to one of the trails last month.
“I just wish my husband didn’t have to die to make this kind of thing happen,” Amy Crockett, Pat’s wife, said.

RALEIGH, N.C. — Ralph Havis, owner of Beef Burger in Greensboro, just got a double dose of good luck.
The NC Lottery says Havis won $150,000 playing the $500 Cash scratch-off game. And get this – he won the same prize in 2014!
“I never thought I’d be here twice,” Havis said.
Getting a scratch-off ticket was a tradition for Havis and his wife Alma who passed away in January. They would go driving on Sunday afternoons to play the lottery.
“It was something fun she could do since she wasn’t able to get around,” Havis said.
