Traffic safety improvements are being made outside the Cook County Jail to better protect corrections officers. This comes after the death of Officer Nikki Bostic-Jones.

Bostic-Jones was killed in a hit-and-run crash in July as she walked to work.

Pedestrian crosswalks will be made in the 2900-block of South California, along with pedestrian islands in the middle of the roadway.

Crews will also add high-visibility signs and pavement markings around the jail.
