People living near the section of road where a 13-year-old boy on a bicycle was killed on Tuesday say the overpass isn't safe, and are demanding change.

The boy died after he was struck by a car just before 5:30 p.m. near the westbound on-ramp to Highway 174 on Jeanne d'Arc Boulevard.

The highway overpass is a busy destination for pedestrians, with many trying to access major bus stops on either end.
