The crosswalk is located at the intersection of Tarrant and State Highway 59.

Bowie Police Chief Guy Green said they have been working with Main Street Bowie and TxDOT to find ways to improve the safety of this area.

With new businesses going in on that block there have been concerns about pedestrian safety. Main Street officials also have concerns about foot traffic during events.
