NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WRDW) -- For several years now, people living at Walton Crossing having been doing their best to get some help crossing West Five Notch Road in North Augusta. Up until recently that help hasn’t been available.

But now South Carolina DOT says they’ll be putting signage up to alert drivers in the area that people are crossing the road.
But it’s more than that, everyone living at Walton Crossing has some sort of disability.

“Our clubhouse is across the street,” says Cheryl Lyle. "We have bingo there, we have activities there and our Dreamcatcher support group is there.”

But the folks at Walton Crossing say that signs aren’t enough and they are hoping that North Augusta City Council will move to add a light system as well.

“We realize it's not going to solve every issue. We realize that. but its a start to our independence and that’s our hope,” Lyle said.

South Carolina DOT says it will be up to City Council to make that decision.

“I'm just happy for everybody that has helped us on this because it has been a long process,” Lyle said.
