In response to community requests, and to ensure pedestrian safety on the busy Eaton Street, the City of Key West has improved center line markings and signage in the area of Elizabeth, Margaret, and William streets.
Eaton Street is a county road, so our engineering and community services departments met with the county to ensure there were no objections.
Given the green light, the improvements were made.
“We are happy to do all we can to improve the safety of our residents and visitors,” said City Manager Patti McLaughlin. “This part of Old Town is quite congested, and we need to remind people to yield to pedestrians.”

This was immediately impactful. It had become very dangerous— not only for pedestrians , but also for crossing vehicles. The whole mentality of drivers on the street has changed. It has been amazing to watch; thank you!
