FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - You might notice some different noises at downtown crosswalks.

The city installed new auditory crosswalks around the Grand Wayne Center. The crosswalks will tell pedestrians with visual disabilities when it's safe to cross the street.

This comes before Fort Wayne hosts the International Blind Sports Federation qualifying competition this summer.

It's part of the city's long-term plan to modernize pedestrian infrastructure across the city.
