Urban planners are making it easier for people to walk through city neighborhoods, with the goal of helping folks become healthier.

The intersection of 38th Street and Warwick Boulevard has been changed to make it safer for walkers and cyclists in Old Hyde Park.

Neighbors say cars often are seen racing through the residential streets at speeds up to 50 miles an hour.

That discourages folks from walking even a few blocks to the corner store, because they don't feel safe.
