The intersection where Alexia Hyneman was killed.
Grady High School will hold a “Rally 4 Safe Streets” tomorrow on the third anniversary of the fatal crash that took the life of Alexia Hyneman. The student was struck by a car while biking across the nearby intersection of 10th Street and Monroe Drive.
The rally is organized by the Grady Pedestrian Safety Coalition, a student-led group that advocates for making streets near schools safer – starting with Monroe Drive. According to program materials, the Renew Atlanta Complete Streets projects were slated to address dangerous conditions, but little progress has been made to date.
The program will include speakers from the coalition, remarks from Hyneman’s father, and an address from Councilmember Jennifer Ide, who will outline the steps the council is taking to make Monroe Drive safer, according to program materials. The coalition will also make clear the next steps community members can take to advocate for safer streets, and will conclude with a memorial for Hyenman.
The rally will be held Tuesday, Feb. 12 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Grady High School Auditorium.
