Our taxes at work: Crossings to nowhere

Can someone explain why we have crosswalks with electronic crossing guides at several locations in Fayette County when in fact, there are no sidewalks on either side of the road and where pedestrians do not cross the road?

Seems like a terrible waste of taxpayers’ money.
