TO THE EDITOR:
An even more expensive but far better option than a pedestrian bridge over South Road would be an underpass for the cars.
When I was a graduate student at Harvard 60 years ago, the university had the same problem: Between classes, hundreds of students needed to cross one of Cambridge’s most heavily traveled city streets. I resolved that if I became rich I would endow an underpass.
Instead of becoming rich, I happily became a physics professor at UNC. But to my delight, a few years later, Harvard and the city found the funds to build an underpass, and students now traverse the street at level crossings safely.
