The council was told that the project would be complete by the second week of May for the La Crescenta intersection, CV Town President Cheryl Davis told Patch.
The original completion date was scheduled for October, she said.

Students at several local schools, including , and , use this crosswalk before and after school.
Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved and will fund the project, Battles said. Crescenta Valley Town Council created a petition in June 2011 and sent it to Supervisor Michael Antonovich.
The new crosswalk will give drivers a better view and help keep pedestrians safe, CV Town Council President Cheryl Davis told Patch.
"I cringe everyday when I drop my daughter off at CV," Davis told Patch.
